I just wanted to get a few thoughts on whether my baby is self settling or not.
Our normal routine is . Change nappy, have a bottle (ebm), in dim room with her sleep music on, and then I sit her up to burp her, give her a little pat on her back and then lay her down in the cot and walk out. Sometimes she is pretty much asleep on the bottle , sometimes she is wide awake and might have a little grizzle in her cot for a few minutes.
But she won't settle to sleep if the bottle part isn't included.
I normally time her bottle to match her sleep time, but if we were out or off track and she needs to sleep, she wont settle without the bottle. So sometimes I have to just give her 50mls.
I know she goes to sleep without being patted or rocked etc but she does still rely on the bottle to wind down as part of the routine.
any tips on maybe getting her to go down without the bottle?
She is 4 months old.
