We decided to cosleep with our daughter after she got a really bad ear infection when she was like 2 months old and has slept with us every since. She never took a bottle or pacifier and strictly nursed. Now she is 22 months old and I just don't know what to do about her not getting to sleep without nursing. I have no idea how to wean her at this point...or how to teach her to get to sleep by herself and sleep in her own bed. I love her so much and it will be harder for me than her (probably) but I need some rest after almost 3 years of no sleep (including pregnancy). How do you gently make that change? What can i do to help her get to sleep on her own and in her own bed? I want to get her a toddler bed and maybe that will help. Any suggestions? I am desperate.
