My little boy is a happy healthy baby and used to be able to self settle easily after moving house and being in a bit of chaos his routine was out of whack!! I nurse 3 times a day, and he usually drifts off for his naps after feeding. If i don not feed at nap times he will not go to sleep. I have tried a little controlled crying but found it very stressful and seemed not to settle him him after long periods. I am hoping to wean once he is 12 months and am worried that this habit will cause sleep associated problems for the future.
P.S. He will not take a bottle or formula in any form of cup - only water...............Cheeky and Determined!!
