I didn't really know where to post this but my issue is that I have always had to nurse my son to sleep. He has always been extremely difficult to fall and stay asleep. Now we are in a semi solid routine but I have to return to work in a week. He is 1 year old and is napping twice a day. We have always coslept and now we are on a mattress on the floor in his room. He usually plays around and acts silly for 5-10 minutes and then nurses for about 5-10 minutes and falls asleep.
So what is my poor mother going to do when I am at work? I have faith they will figure out a way as this is what I have read but is there any suggestions to make the transition easier or any tips on how to proceed? They will be at our house so he will have access to his floor bed and she could try laying in that with him and giving him a soother which he sometimes takes. Or they could try the crib that is still in my husbands room that my son has NEVER slept in? Or we have a playpen?
I have about a week left should I also try to help them or just let them start when I leave?
I know there will be a lot of tears and screaming and I am ok with that but I dont want my mom to be stressed out as this is a big enough transisiton as is.
Any help/tips/advice is appreciated!
