First time forum participant here! So glad this resource exists.
I'm happily nursing my 15 month old 2-3 times a day. At wakeup, into a nap, and to sleep. He sleeps through the night (finally!) and just started doing on his own accord a few weeks ago.
Here's my question/concern.
I'd like for my husband to be able to put him to sleep in a peaceful way, in the event that I can not be here to do it myself (emergency for instance). There is the possibility that starting in the fall, I will return to work and my husband will be putting him down for naps. We have plenty of time to plan for it, which is why I'm thinking about it now.
Any suggestions of how to do this gradually? The ideas that came to me were getting my husband involved now in our bedtime routine, even if we are still nursing. Perhaps have him do the glider/crib transfer. Also perhaps we incorporate music during nursing so he has another association with drifting off to sleep that is not nursing-related. I'm sure there are other ideas out there. He does fall asleep on his own in the car, not sure if that info helps.
Thanks in advance!
