My daughter can't fall asleep in the evening without breastfeeding.I have tried to put her to bed without it,singin and bending her or only by explaining her she has to sleep but is not worth.She doesn't fall asleep and starts crying.She can only do that after two or three hours.Can you please give some advice of how can I put her to bed without breastfeeding?

How old is your child? If she is still very young then introduce a fleecy blanket and a dummy. Rub the blanket around your chest to get your scent on it and let her cuddle into that, give her a dummy and rock her gently, place her in the cot and let her self soothe. Babies find it difficult to self soothe sometimes. I used a radio in my childrens nursery on classical music very low volume. This helped them to relax as they did not feel alone in the room. They all had a blanket as well to snuggle. My daughter is now three and she still has her fleecy blanket (which I have several duplicates of) and she will sleep anywhere if she has it.

thank you very much for your answer,I´ll try this method.My daughter turns 11 months in May 23 and I have tried a lot of times toget her to bed without breastfeeding but it is very difficult.I kiss her goodnight and say her that it is time for her to go to bed and sing her a song or tell a story to her.She cries a lot and get up immediately,she repeats it as many time as i lay her to bed.But I think that wakeing up at nate crying is because of her teeth
