DD was nursed to sleep till 20mths old... now at 22mths she is cuddled to sleep on the couch then we take her to bed. With the new bubba due in the near future I dont want her to miss out on cuddle time. So DH and I take turns to cuddle her. It doesnt take longer than 15/20 min but DH is convinced that its better to just put her in bed and walk out.
I'm not ok with that.

Never. When she was a little baby (under 4mths) I got into the habit of jiggling her to sleep. But that all stopped once I realised that my mum always just put her down in the cot and left, and she was fine with that!
It wouldn't occur to me, tbh.

Glad to see a mixture of responses - helps me to know that every other parent doesn't pat their bubs to sleep. DS has never cried once, ever, when I've put him down. So there was never a need to stay and pat. But I like the idea of it and when he goes to a big bed maybe I'll lie with him until he goes to sleep sometimes although he'll prob stay awake then and I'll form bad habits! :0

I never did with my daughter, but within the last 12 months, has wanted me to lay next to her, so I do. She is asleep within 5 minutes.
My son was in our bed for a few months, but goes into his cot no problem now, but if he wants me to lay next to him later on, I will.

Nope my boys are in their room together (nearly four and 2.5) so it normally takes a lot of reminding that its sleep time not talking time before they go to sleep. Ds1 would never be rocked to sleep or co sleep even as a newborn, he wanted his own space. Ds2 was rocked to sleep til about 18months and co slept til about 12 then just decided he didnt need it...
Ds3... What's sleep? He just likes to cuddle all.night.long.

Yes, always....she is 18 months and loves cuddles, it is such a nice time. We still stay with our 3 year old and 5 year old too, I love watching them drift off to sleep. I lie down with the 7 year old too and just chat.

My husband puts them to sleep every night. First DD at 8 pm who takes half hour. Then DS at 8.30 pm and that usually takes 30-40 mins. We both have bad sleepers. DS still wakes up atleast once and DD once for nappy change at midnight.

Ds will sometimes sleep with us otherwise will go to sleep on his own he will protest but for only about 2 mins, he has only ever stayed in his bed the full night about 4 times and will come in with us.
