    They will be. DH does bedtime with K, but I still go up and kiss her goodnight after Lu's asleep. When he works at night, I have a different routine with the girls. You'll find a routine that works for everyone.

    I feel this way too. We're three months in, and this is teh part of the part of the day that I dont feel like I've got figured out yet-I get so frustrated with myself that I havent found a balance yet.
    Bennett doesnt nurse to sleep either. He is not a comfort nurser at all, which is so different from Cooper who would nurse all the time if I let him. Its nice in a lot of ways, but in some ways not.

    And I confess that I find it frustrating that DH often has an easier time getting the baby to sleep. I don't know if its because he's got a different technique, or more likely is more patient than I am. After I've already spent lots of time nursing I get impatient then needing to also spend another long time getting baby to sleep. When DH isn't around and my arms are getting tired I'll put the baby in the babyhawk and try to "wear" him to sleep.
