    DD2 is fine going to sleep herself, but I love sitting and watching he fall asleep. And she asks me to sit with her and rub her back sometimes because "it's makes her tummy happy"

    Our children are either bf or cuddled to sleep as babies/toddlers.

    Now DD is older(4), we read her some books and stay with her until she is asleep (usually after 2-3 books).

    We do it that way because it is what feels natural for us but each family is different.

    Yes, he's now 2.5 and in a toddler bed and would just keep getting up if I didn't stay with him. He was either cuddled or rocked to sleep as a baby.

    We co-sleep and either DP or I cuddle our 17 month old DD to sleep. It's such a special time stroking her hair and singing songs while she drifts off. Only takes 10-15 minutes and it's a ritual we all love

    No, we do story, into her sleeping bag, long cuddle then into her cot.

    We put DD to bed, give kisses and cuddles then leave and let her fall to sleep by herself - we've done this since she was a baby (can't remember but probably from 6 months onward?)

    I found if we ever stayed with her for any reason she would muck around and not go to sleep as she would if we've left the room.

    He is cuddled or fed to sleep. Would love to get to him falling asleep in his cot, even with us there, but no idea how. Maybe once he's weaned.

    this has made me feel a little better.

    DD has been sooooo tricky with sleep....we have recently (the last 3 weeks) had progress in that she is only needing 1 resettle over night.

    BUT...it takes at least an hour to get her to sleep...and it is a full on battle. If i cuddle her, she bites and scratches (alternating with laughing and giggling and being adorable)...she sometimes lays on her bed (she was out of her cot at 12 months as she could climb out...but mainly co slept anyway cause she used to wake every 60 minutes)...and i feel thoroughly warn out.

    She actively fights sleep...day naps take about 45 minutes to get her down to sleep...she normally likes to cuddle off to sleep then though.

    I dread to think how many hours i have spent settling her over the last 20 months I have spent trying to settle her.

    I am hoping and hoping that soon she starts to fight sleep less...and that one day she will cuddle down and sleep easily. I would not mind a 15-20 minute cuddle at bed time, anything under 30 miuntes would be blessed!
