    Default How do you put your baby to sleep?

    How do you put your baby to sleep and settle them at night?
    With DS I fed him to sleep till 6 months then I would just lay there on the bed with him and he would fall asleep. To resettle I just pat him, never picked him up from bed or let him have my boobs for comfort. We co-slept.
    With DD now 6 months old, I am still feeding her to sleep, she loves my boobs for comfort and to resettle I also offer her the boobs and cuddles.
    We co-sleep.
    Just wondering what everyone else does?

    Ds is 2. I lay on my bed with him. We move him into his cot when asleep. When he wakes up, usually between 2 and 7am, he comes in with us until its time to get up, around 8

    He used to self settle, but df wanted to rock him to sleep.... So did and ruined that routine, I was left rocking him to sleep.....until 14 months, he settled in the cot with me in the room for a bit, then played up so have been doing this since

    I Feed to sleep and sometimes she will wake and resettle herself when I put her into her cot. Of a night she starts off in her cot and then when she wakes I bring her into our bed where she sleeps for the rest of the night and I feed her when she stirs

    I wrap my 3 month old and hold him till he gets a bit sleepy looking then pop him in his basinette. He usually just goes to sleep. If that doesn't work sometimes i'll rock him to sleep.

    Dd1 was boobed to sleep till 19mths then cuddled till 30mths and now I hold her hand at 32mths.

    Dd2 is still boobed to sleep at 10mths old.

    Both girls could resettle without a boob from 5-6mths old.
