I have gotten into the habit of nursing my son to sleep, usually while lying down in the bed, or on the floor. He is 8 1/2 months old now, and I'm planning to go back to work in January, when he will be 10 months, so I thought I'd better start changing the process now. Any suggestions? I'm concerned because he won't take a bottle anymore, he just chews on it, but he will take expressed milk in a sippy cup.
I guess the question is how to get him to separate the idea of nursing from sleep so that I am not required for him to go to sleep.
Nursing to sleep is easy, but not always possible. What do other people do for sleep routines?
