Hi Lori. Your situation sounds similar to ours but I don't fall asleep but my dh always does. I am too anxious for that one hour a day I have to myself to fall asleep. Can your dh wake you up? This is waht I do for my dh. I give him about 30 minutes and then I quietly go in the room and wake him up. By this time dd is usually sound asleep and he can get up and leave the room. I can go in sooner than 30 minutes if I hear my dh start to snore!!

As far as falling asleep on her own, we haven't really tried it at night. We usually play with her and read her books and then turn out the light and dh lies down with her and she plays with his hair and sucks her thumb until she falls asleep. (She weaned a couple of months ago.) He really enjoys this time with her so we haven't felt the need to change it. She is with an au pair during the day and she falls asleep by herself with her. They read books and when dd starts to look sleep, the au pair tells her it is time to sleep and she rolls over and falls asleep.

Good luck.
