Other than CIO, how do you get your LO's to sleep at night. My little guy is almost 14 months and I'm trying to change his nightly routine. He usually falls asleep in my or my hubby's arms while drinking a milk bottle. I just learned about bottle rot so I want to change this.
I do not agree with CIO (please save your arguments for this method. this post isnt about whether it's right or wrong). I would like to be able to put my DS to bed in his crib and have him just go to sleep.

get him into a bed time routine for one. If he knows what to expect it is easier. Sound happy and upbeat about bedtime. read him a story.
If he cries go in and lay him back down and in a calming soothing voice say its time for night night (or whatever you say) the next time don't talk just lay him back down stretch out the time between going into him eventually he will catch the clue. add 3-5 minutes with each visit.
You know he is safe so there is no reason to pick him back up or talk to him. the more you talk to him the more stimulated he will become and it will take forever. by you checking on him and laying him back down he reassured that you are still there and will feel safe and will go to sleep
