Hi all, Just want your opinions really... At bed time we have always waited until amber fell asleep downstairs then take her up to bed but i thought because these times always varied we needed a propor time so last few nights i have been putting her to bed by 8.....and crossing my fingers she would get herself to sleep. It has been hard when she is crying but i leave her for 5 minutes then go back in and put her dummy back in and i have not been picking her up. It is taking her about 45 mins to an hour to get herself to sleep..... as she gets used to it will this time get shorter? I do want to get her in bed by 7 as i go back to work in march and i will need her to have breakfast before i go out in the mornin and at the mnute she s waking at 8.30 in the morning. SHall i put her to bed 10 mins earlier each night and stagger it that way??
