From nursing to sleep to crib at nap time
Anyone did it? How? Today I nursed my ds, put him awake in his crib and I've been sitting in a chair next to his crib for more than an hour! He has cried, played, screamed but I did not give up. I blew his nose, pat his back but did not pick him up. It is very hard! I'm on the verge of crying but he needs to learn how to self sooth to sleep. I've read every online tips but can't seem to find anything on how to do it. Can I keep the same bedtime routine (nurse to sleep and co sleep) but teach him to fall asleep on his own for nap time or am I confusing him? And what do I do when he nap for 45 minutes than wake up and fall back asleep nursing? I let him sleep in my arms or put him back down?
