DD is 11 months old and always nurses to sleep (with rare exception, which is only ever in the car, on the bus in the sling, etc., and often not then). I have no issue with her nursing at night, and if for some reason she's awake when I go to bed it's fine then, but it's the naps and her regular bedtime (way before mine) that drive me nuts. She ALWAYS nurses to sleep. I'd love to be able to lay her down, tuck her in and walk away sometimes, but I don't think I'll ever get that lucky. lol So I'd settle for being with her, but getting her down without the boob so I don't have to wait forever to get my nipple out without her stirring and latching back on.
So, suggestions? Obviously CIO is not an option, but I don't know how to do it. She knows I got the good stuff and gets angry if I don't give it to her. She doesn't have any pacifiers (I did have one hanging around and tried it a few times, didn't work). I don't care if she has to nurse to sleep sometimes, just not ALL the time anymore...I'm going nuts.
ETA: Any tips on how to get her to sleep better, too? She's a good night sleeper, but often wakes during naps (and then wants to nurse) and lots of times ends up waking early and not getting a good nap.
