Help me remove the boob from bedtime!! Our 4 month old is ready for some sleep learning. We won't do CIO, but we're also still currently trying to figure out what works best for our family. Our main struggle is that over the last week, I've realized she's like an addict for my boobs at bedtime (and all wakeups). We can't seem to get her past that 40 min sleep cycle, because she doesn't know how to soothe herself back to sleep - this is the main reason we're doing sleep training, and why I really want to remove the nursing piece. She won't take a paci.
Naps are easy to remove feedings before sleep, but right now, she's napping in the carrier.
What did your bedtime routine look like when you started sleep training?? I'm not sure when to feed her (so she doesn't fall asleep) in the routine.
ETA: I'm a "just enougher" with my supply, and we give her a 2 ounce bottle of pumped milk in addition to her nursing before bed. I'd have to pump, but I would be willing to just do 3.5 ounces of milk in a bottle if it makes it easier to get away from nursing to sleep.
