My dd is 9 months old and I'm finding myself not wanting to to have to nurse her to sleep anymore. I am fully aware that I have created this habit since she was born. I am still definately continuing to EBF as long as she continues to want it, so that's not going to stop anytime soon. But I really want her to learn how to be able to go down for naps and at bed time without having to: nurse, fall asleep while nursing, then stay on my lap for another 5-15 minutes so she is in a deep sleep, then move her to her crib. I have always been fine with it, but now it's getting exhausting to me and she's getting older, and I want to help her have good sleeping habits. I do not want to CIO but welcome any other gentle suggestions please.
Any help/suggestions on what has worked for you ladies?
