My 7 mo old son only goes to sleep with me nursing him to sleep. This happened with our 1st child, now 3yo, and I vowed to never, ever let that happen again! I desperately wanted to give new baby more opportunities for going to sleep than just nursing to sleep. But then, bit by bit, I took over nursing him to sleep, don't know how, it just sort of happened ... and here we are at 7 months and only I can get him to sleep. I absolutely want my husband to be able to get him to sleep, too. Oh - he does take baby for a walk in the Ergo till he falls asleep, but only about 40% of the time does baby stay asleep when he makes the transfer to bed. The rest of the time I have to nurse him back to sleep.
I have been trying the Pantley Gentle Pull-Off method for at least 3 months now and it absolutely does not work. What else can I do? Right now as I'm typing this, baby is crying, sobbing with my husband. Daddy took him for a walk in the Ergo, he fell asleep, but when transferring he woke up. I tried nursing him back to sleep and he was like, la la la! Mommy's here! I'm awake! So I told him he needed to go to sleep with daddy, but he's been crying for 10 mins now. Ooops, here daddy comes into the kitchen where I am! Sigh. What do I do??
