  • I nurse my daughter laying down on our bed. Once she's asleep, I do the switcheroo (nipple to pacifier) and I slowly get up and leave the room.

  • Sometimes they just need to nap in your arms. But this is when you want to start bed breaking them so you dont end up with a 5 yr old still sleeping with you.

  • How do you get her to sleep at night? I would think following the same routine would help.
