My dd is 26 months old and she has never fallen asleep without the breast... bad habit??? Actually, at nap time she nurses for 20 min or so and falls asleep at the breast; at night time, she nurses for 30 min or so but usually doesn't fall asleep at the breast and I end up "bouncing" her in my arms while sitting at the edge of the bed. I really want her to fall asleep on her own now but I don't know how to transition to the next step. The few times that I tried to lay down besisdes her after breastfeeding she just spent 1 hour or more jumping on the bed next to me (in a pitch dark room!). After 3 or 4 days of that routine I gave up.
