I'm looking at changing my LO's bedtime routine as I want to retrain him to settle himself to sleep at night. We have always from day dot given him his night time bottle right before bed n essentially breastfed to sleep seen he was really little. He is now almost 11 months n him not being able to go to sleep by himself is stressing me out because it takes me an hour each night...
So our routine atm is:
5.30pm dinner (as this is the time I get home from wrk)
6.20 pm bath
6.30 pm get into pj's
6.40 pm bottle in bedroom
Ideally 7.00pm asleep
So I'd like to get some ideas as to what routines others hav so I can change his routine so he is not being fed to sleep....

Could you give him a bottle while sitting on your lap reading a bedtime story?

I am currently weening (for lack of a bettet word) dd4 off feeding to sleep.
Currently our routine (for her, excluding the older kids) goes
6.30 bath and pjs on
7.00 play until she starts showing her tired signs (stroking her hair, rubbing her eyes). That play could last anywhere from half an hour to 2 hours.
Once she shows her tired signs, i put her in the high chair, give her a bottle and if she starts getting drowsy I take her bottle and give her the dummy and put her in the cot. Sometimes she isnt quite ready and when that happens I get her up, repeat the bottle until drowsy then put her down again and she usually goes to sleep within a couple of minutes.
If she finishes her bottle and still awake I give her the dummy and put her down. Again sometimes she isnt quite ready so if she is just grizzly i leave her, and she soon falls asleep. If she starts getting a bit worked up i get her up for 15 mins or so then try again and she goes to sleep.
