Truthfully, how important is it for a baby to self settle? I know my lo can self settle because if he wakens in the night for a bottle I feed him and then put him back in the cot awake and he goes over to sleep in about 5 mins by himself. Going to bed in the evening is different though. I settle him to sleep by pushing the buggy over a bump then when he's sleeping I lift him and take him up to his cot. He usually goes over to sleep within 5 mins so it's really no hassle. I have tried putting him in his cot drowsy etc but he just gets really upset so I lift him and settle him in his buggy. Is this really a big deal? He's 5 months.
