Ok Ok I know I conditioned her to be like this but I need help to kick this habit. I am a stay at home mom to a 5 month old. I hold her (in the rocking chair usually) everytime she naps. She falls asleep there BFing and I just read a book or something. I have tried to put her in her crib but she wakes up if not right away then within 5 minutes and cries. I try to get her back to sleep and then put her back down but she just wakes up again and it leads to a tired, cranky and miserable mommy as well as baby.
We have a bedtime routine: bath, little massage, jammies, story, and nursing while in rocking chair. When she falls asleep I can put her in her crib no problem. Sometimes she'll wake up but I just rock her back to sleep and she sleeps at least 6 hours, usually 8. But she will not go down during the day.
I dont want to let her cry it out but this habit has got to be kicked. HELP
