I have a dd who's 7.5 mths. I'm at the point where lack of sleep is really affecting my relationships with all the people I care about, and want to hear some others stories about sleeping and feeding and maybe some ideas to try.
My LO is bottle fed, and had always went to sleep in the bed pretty well. As soon as she was full you just put her into bed and she'd go off to sleep quite easily, maybe occasionally 10 mins of a grizzly cry (not really upset). At 3.5mths we had some big problems with feeding, and I found if I waited until she was sleepy, it would take me only 20 mins for her to drink the same amount of milk that I could spend the whole time she was awake trying to get her to drink. (Tried feed-play-sleep wasn't working anymore, now it's play-solids-play-milk-sleep).
I'm just wondering how others have taught their LO's to drink bottle themselves? I can't get her to but I know she can hold it.
Also wondering how others have taught their little ones to sleep in their own bed without too much crying.
She is a pretty clingy baby, but I want to help her become more independent.
I just feel a bit out of my depth.
