I have an 8 month old who wakes 2-3 times in the night for a bottle or soothing. In the past, he would wake and have his milk and fall straight back to sleep, but now he wakes up wide awake and expects rocking (sometimes for 90 minutes) before he will go back to sleep and i'm exhausted!
I'm worried I've given him a sleep association as I've realised I'm rocking him now every time before he naps and he goes off quite quickly, and usually at night too. The only other time he sleeps is when he's in the car.
Can anyone recommend a good book which works on weaning them off the association and teaching them to self settle which doesn't require leaving the baby to cry?
