...when and how did you transition to putting him/her down to sleep?
DS is 4 1/2 months, and I hold him (or sling him, which he does not like as well) for all of his naps. Honestly, it is nice for me to have this time as a break for internet surfing/reading/movie watching. We are moving to a new house in a month or so, and I thought that once we were settled it might be a good time to work on napping without mama.
At bedtime, I nurse him in the rocking chair, then lay down with him in the bed and nurse until I can sneak off. He sleeps for up to 2-3 hours, then I either come to be dor repeat the nurse-sneak away bit. When I used to try to put him down for naps, he slept at max of 30 min. The dark seems to help...
Just hoping for some input on when your dc was ready to nap alone, and where you put him/her, and how you made the transition. TIA!!
