My 16 month old is down to nursing once a day-- before bed. Nursing her to sleep has become a crutch and the only way she'll get to sleep at night. Now I am pregnant and with my growing belly it is getting too hard to place her in the crib after she is asleep. (my hubby works nights) I would like to start getting her to fall asleep on her own. I tried CIO and she is a determined girl who will cry for hours and not give up and she stands. She never lets herself lay down to even try to sleep. We did it for several days and the crying and the lack of sleep led me right back to where I am. We have a bedtime routine of bath story and nursing. She just needs tht comfort to actually fall asleep. Even nap time she gets rocked to sleep before going to her crib. Any suggestions? I am getting desperate.
