Not the routine but what exactly what do you do to get them ready for sleep/drowsy/actually asleep. Do you nurse to sleep? Rock them til drowsy then lay down? Rock til fully asleep? Something else?
DS2 has always been a sleep fighter. He has been an extremely fussy/hard baby in general. With DS1 I never wanted to create "bad" sleep associations so I never did any of those things. With this one, I had to do whatever worked because almost nothing worked. Sometimes I have nursed to sleep and most recently rocking. Rocking worked for a little while but he has been fighting that more and more.
I watch his sleep cues to make sure I'm not putting him down too early or too late. I don't mind rocking or whatever but I would just like to start putting him down without such a fight. He seems to have a hard time transitioning from awake and playing to now it's time to sleep even though he's tired.
So what do you do?
