My daughter nurses to sleep still and she is just over 3 years old but from about age 2 she has been able to go to sleep with dad too, she just prefers me. He scratches her back and sometimes he hums, that works for him. My daughter could fall asleep in the stroller and by nursing when she started daycare at 19 months. It was a transition period for the first 2 weeks but she did fine after that. They would lie down with her and stroke her hair or sing and she would go to sleep. At first though they had to let some of the other children go to sleep as she took some effort to get to go to sleep. After a couple more months she fell asleep with no extra help like all the others.
