I've been working on not feeding my 14 month old to sleep as well.
I started on day sleeps, I'd feed him while the room was still bright, then close the curtains and put him in his bed, and I would sit down next to his bed until he fell asleep. I've recently added reading a book to this routine.
We've also in the last couple of days changed the night routine to bath, boob, teeth, bed, book instead of bath, teeth, boob, bed.
He will normally lay down sometime during the book, and will play with the 3 soft toys that are in bed with him. The average time it takes him to go to sleep is 35 mins. Tonight it was 5, but the other night was an hour and 35.
We have really worked with him do that he knows he is not allowed to stand up - if he stands we ask him to sit bak down and he normally does. We also lay his toys down and say to him "horsey is sleeping, good horsey" and he'll usually copy it.
The eventual goal is to be able to read the book and leave the room without tears.
I just can't bring myself to CC. I know it works for a lot of people, and I am kind of jealous of a friend who can just duck out of the room to put their 5 month old to bed and be back in 1 minute, but it just doesn't work for our family.
