I changed my 13.5 month olds bed to a toddler bed yesterday. We used to and still cosleepwhen she wakes up at night to breastfeed, but it was becoming impossible to put her to bed at night. I breastfed her to sleep til 11 mon then found out I shouldn't be doing that and we went through a few months of hellish night time routines and tried to find something that worked. Another reason I stopped bf'ing to sleep is she would wake up when I tried to set her down in her crib and it was getting frustrating. I put pillows below her toddler bed and she seems to slide down fine with no problems. I am now brestfeeding her to sleep in her bed.
Is there anything wrong with this? I feel like I'm failing at motherhood, but being a stay at home mom with a husband that works and goes to school full time means I have no help. Also we live in a diff country so I have no family to help me.
We tried Ferber, back rubbing, and she just cries.
