I've noticed DD6mnths is scratching the sheets when she has a brief awakening...it's so odd and funny to watch. She just softly scratches them back and forth for a few minutes to put herself to sleep.

DD has always been a hair twirler, but as she has gotten older (she is 4 in a few months) its developed into this specific process of gathering up a bunch of hair, twirling it around and then into a loop, then pinching that loop between thumb and forefinger while using the other fingers the stroke the little loop of hair, she puts herself to sleep this way! Funny little ppl

DS strokes his dummy until he falls asleep. I dare say he isn't the only child to do so. But it is still rather funny

I know DS is ready to go to sleep when he puts something on his face - blanket, teddy, comforter... Anything.
I still have to sleep with something next to my face too!

DD1 had a blankie, that had a random thread hanging off the corner. She would rub the thread over her nose while sucking her fingers.

DS lies on his stomach and waves his bum in the air I rock him on sleep that way so he rocks himself to sleep if I stop.
Not at bedtime, but if we have to stop doing something he likes he has to say goodbye to it. like if we have to leave the park he'll be crying and saying "bye park, byyyeeeeeee" and waving like mad

My son has a pillow that is almost as big as him, he purses his lips like a bf babe would while dreaming, and strokes his eyebrow.
My other son needs a drink of water to go to bed, he always has fallen asleep with a water bottle in his hand.
Funny little people.
