I have a daughter of nearly 5 months (one and only) and after a holiday and sickness she has become used to fall a sleep in my arms, both in the evening and during each of her naps during the day. I am not quite sure how we got to this stage so quickly but now I am trying to get back to her get to fall asleep by herself however after 10 days of screaming this seams to be really difficult. So I wonder if anyone has been in similar situation and what have you done?
Not a mistake - 5 months is really tiny why shouldn't she fall asleep in your arms? My DD is only now learning to self-settle at 9 months. If you want to make a change NCSS is good, if not - you can always make the change later!
