I've been trying to get DD out of the nursing to sleep habit now that she's 18 months. I'm the only one who can get her to sleep and DH and I would both like for me to be able to be away at bedtime. Over the last couple nights I've tried nursing and rocking to drowsy and putting her down. She cries and fusses, and even when she does fall asleep, it's a very restless night. She'll be up more often and wakes earlier. But if I nurse and put her down asleep, she doesn't wake overnight and generally sleeps longer. Is this normal? And will she eventually self wean and be able to sleep well without needing to nurse to sleep? I guess I'd just like to know that eventually she'll be able to do this on her own.
