Let us guide you along week-by-week!)
My kid still likes to be rocked. Meh. Whatever. Bonding time. No kid ever went to college being rocked.
My LO sleeps all night 4 days out of the week and wakes up once the other 3. I just give in and give her a sippy. It's easiest, we're all back to bed in 2 minutes, no screaming required. I don't see the big deal either.
I'm still up for 2 nighttime nursing sessions, that are lasting 45 minutes each. I don't know WHAT'S going on but I hope it's teeth (AKA it will end). This mom is tired.
She's not CRYING when she wakes...just fussing/stirring. Since I don't get to see her before I leave for work in the AM.....I don't usually mind going to her.
My LO still gets either rocked (H) or nursed (me) to sleep for naps/bedtime. IMO there's nothing wrong with this, they are still little and if he needs some cuddling to sleep that's fine. I don't think we'll be rocking him to sleep in high school, kwim?
LO wakes up a few times to nurse, but he goes right back to sleep. Seems easier to nurse him back to sleep, which takes ~5min, than let him get all worked up. We all get more sleep this way.
IMO there's no "right" way, some kids sleep longer stretches at night early on but others it takes longer. Some kids need to be soothed for a while and some get the hang of going back to sleep on their own earlier. It's like anything, there's a wide variation of normal. At the end of the day, you should do what works best for you/LO to maximize sleep and not worry about what bumpies or the neighbors or whomever kids are doing.
