Best of luck!
I moved on to step two of my transitioning plan this morning. Still humming, patting and feeding but this time I waited until she was almost asleep and then removed her from the breast. She made a small attempt to reattach herself but some ducking and weaving on my part kept her off. 😜 She drifted off to sleep about a minute later! Fingers crossed I can replicate this small piece of success at her afternoon nap too!
I thought I'd come back and update this incase anyone is interested. My plan got completely derailed by teething. Dd was miserable and wouldn't settle for anything but feeding to sleep. I kept up the patting and humming while I fed but stopped trying to stop feeding before she fell asleep. I was disappointed.
Much to my surprise, dd decided 5 nights ago she didn't want to feed to sleep at bedtime! Instead I patted and hummed and she dozed off happily. Same thing for the last 4 nights. It seems she's taken the decision into her own hands. ☺️
Still feeding to sleep for naps but I have hope that she'll wean herself from that too when she's ready.
Great to read, OP. Hope she keeps it up!
Darn that teething! Sound slike things are working out ok
