my son is 18 months. At bedtime I place a pacifier in his mouth, put on a lullaby CD, and sit in a chair in the dark until he falls asleep. I then move him into his bed where he sleeps for a few hours. He wakes up anywhere from 11 pm to 3am. If he wakes around 11 or 12 I can often go in and hold him in the chair again until he falls back asleep. If he wakes at 2 or 3 I bring him into bed with me, but lately he just squirms and kicks in bed and won't go back to sleep. I'd like him to learn how to fall asleep on his own, but I am not sure where to start. I've tried the no cry sleep solution, and CIO and niether has worked for him. He will not take to a lovey.
How did you teach your toddler to fall asleep on his own?
