Any advice on getting a 20 month old to go to sleep on his own? BACK STORY- He was a preemie. Born 3 months premature. Spent 2 months in Nicu. After coming home he slept mostly in a rocker or his swing (he had acid reflux and couldn’t sleep on his back) when he got much bigger we started co sleeping. He’s over that. Once he’s asleep he will sleep all night. We finally got him off the bottle at night about a month ago. We are making progress. But he won’t go to sleep on his own. Sometimes he will fall asleep on the couch or on the floor playing. Other times I still have to rock him. Any tips, tricks or advice?!
