Sleep training advice for 1 year old

Anonymous

Hi, I need some advice on how to sleep train our 1 year old. He’s been used to nursing to sleep and has refused the bottle since around 9 months old. We’ve tried the CIO method when he was younger but he would get so upset that he would throw up. I have to start traveling for work so my husband needs a method he can use since he obviously can’t nurse. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!

    Honestly, you being gone is the solution. It’ll be one rough night and then fine. You could do a transition sippy cup of milk. But your husband might just comfort or cio while you’re gone and the nursing will be finished

    We also tried CIO when our lil was younger and was an issue and didn’t work. Tried again at 9 months and I stopped feeding at night and this time it worked. For about a week, my hubby was the one to go in and rub her back a little before she fell back asleep so she didn’t sense me or the milk and it worked. One or two rough nights. With you not there I think it will be completely different experience. We decided to give another try after she spent a few night at my parents and went down easier and slept mostly thru the night. Realized she didn’t really need me... or the night feedings.
