My daughter is almost 19 months and we never got in the habit of letting her fall asleep on her own in her crib. We went from falling asleep nursing to the swing, then holding and walking, rocking with a bottle, and the most recent was reading her to sleep on the couch. Now she doesn't want to sit still, put her pjs on or anything, and just cries when I put her in her bed.
I love being up with her, she is very happy. However, when I put her to bed at 8pm I would study from then until 10pm so I could get up at 5am to attend grad school. I don't want to hear her cry real long in bed and really don't know what to do!
