Hi moms,

My 9 months old does not know any other way to sleep other than nursing and because of this i have many problems coz sometimes he is fussy but doesnt take my breast and sleep

how can i try to encourage him to sleep on his own.... I dont want to cry him out....

You would have to experiment because it takes different measures to soothe each baby. My favorite thing to do is hold my LO while I'm bouncing on my exercise ball, he falls right to sleep when all else fails! For one of my nephews, he loved to be put in the swing. Since your LO likes to nurse, have you tried the pacifier?

My 10 month old loves her Lullaby Gloworm. when she is fussing and doesn't want to sleep I put the music on, she quiets down right away. It's also great for the car, keeps her quiet.
