As above, I've got a question about bubs going to sleep on their own...
My dd is a few days off nine months, she's always had to wrapped and rocked to sleep, except at night (since 5 mths). Just this last couple of weeks, she's been putting herself to sleep, for example, while in her portacot while at work with me, and also in her cot at home!
Now, while this is not essentially a bad thing, I'm wondering if it's normal - today she wouldn't let me rock her to sleep! She woke early this morning and fed at about 5.30am, we then had a little cuddle, and I popped her into her cot at about 6ish so I could quickly have a shower. I gave her 3 dummies to keep her occupied until I came out. While in the shower, I heard her throw two of them out (floating floorboards). I hurried up, worried that she was about to cry for me, and went to get her out ASAP, only to find her asleep, with a dummy in her mouth! Then at work this morning, I wrapped her as normal for her nap, and sat on our lounge to rock her to sleep, and she wouldn't settle. I thought it was because it was too noisy at that time. I left her wrapped up and with her dummy and popped her into her portacot while I did some work for less than five minutes, went back in to check on her, and she was sound asleep again! This afternoon, she fell asleep while feeding, which is not something she does often.
Anyway, is this sort of thing normal behavour for a nine month old baby! Surely she's too young to settle herself like this, or to want to do this all the time???
