My daughter is almost 16 months, I've rocked her to sleep since the day she was born. How do i do it???
I'm about to be enrolling my daughter into daycare, she's only been with me or her memaw and is not good with strangers. How can i prepare her for this without having to just drop her off and let her scream her head off because I'm leaving her with complete strangers??
I really need advice on these two things... Help me???

ok breathe - my daughter has only ever been breastfed to sleep at home, but at daycare will happily drop off to sleep with everyone else. I'm still trying to get that to happen at home LOL
Don't stop doing it at home if it works for you and you are happy with it - i use my putting bubba to bed time to play games on my phone and wind down. Childcare will struggle for a few days, but trust me, she'll see the other kids doing it and after a few days she will also copy.
