My son is 8 months & 3 weeks and whenever he wakes up at night i go in and rock him back to sleep. He isn't ever awake long and I never interact with him, just pick him, his blankey, and his pacifier up and rock him. For a while i had been falling asleep alot in the rocking chair and that meant i had to stay longer because once i would get up he would wake up from being snuggled so long. I know he should be put down while awake and fall asleep on his own but I've never done it and I personally don't see the true need at this age. He doesn't sleep in our bed anymore at all, he sleeps the entire night once or twice a week, and i like snuggling him at night. I just worry I'm doing the wrong thing. Any advice?
