My son is now 17 months and we have been co-sleeping since his birth. He used to fall asleep with nursing, and still does, although now that he's more active and older he needs to walked and sung to, and the time that it takes for him to go to sleep has gotten longer and longer. I feel like this can't be the only successful way to put toddlers to sleep without using the cry it out method. I have no desire to put him in another room and let him cry until he falls asleep. What are your experiences with toddlers bedtime... how long does it typically take them to get to sleep? My son tends to fight sleep, but I know he's tired. We get a bath, we put jammies on, we sing softly, then we nurse and lay down, and then if that's not working we get up and I pace around the room while he nurses and sing. But this is getting so tiring! Man alive!
