DS is nearly 6mths and used to be a fantastic self settler. I'd put him in his Wrap Me Up swaddle and within 5mins he'd be asleep without any help from me usually.
These past few weeks, I've been transitioning from the wrap to a normal sleeping bag as he's starting to roll. I've finally got him sleeping with his arms out and he even sleeps past the first sleep cycle on his own now which is great.
HOWEVER it's now taking me forever to get him to sleep initially every time I put him down.
I've tried leaving him but after 45mins he still isn't asleep and then ends up over tired & grumpy. I am now forced to rock him to sleep, which can take anywhere from 5-20mins. I'm concerned this is now going to become a sleep association which has to be done for every sleep.
Is this normal when going through a transition? Any advice on how to get my good self settler back pronto?
