Help me mums and dads! I've been very happy to keep rocking my 7 1/2 months old DS to sleep until he seems ready to stop, however I hurt my back playing on the mat with him yesterday and it's just too painful!
I need ideas/strategies for other ways to get him to sleep. I have half-heartedly tried some self settling things in the past without much luck but I haven't been very consistent.
Ideally I'd like something 'no cry', but after the tears last night because all I could do was just lay with him and hope he'd fall back to sleep (any sort of patting was making him worse, he ended up more hysterical than i have ever seen him!) I'm open to other options.
I have him in a portacot as we will be moving a few times in the coming months, so anything that requires reaching in through cot bars won't be do-able either.
Thanks in advance!
