Do your babies go to sleep OK at other people's houses, or is it a struggle? Our 15-month son now generally sleeps fine at home, but when we are visiting friends or family he cries for a good 10 or 20 minutes when put in his travel cot. We have to just walk away and leave him, as he just won't sleep at all otherwise. But as you can imagine, it's horrible listening to him cry, and it's also not exactly the start for a nice relaxing evening with friends or family. The funny thing is that once he's asleep, he's fine, and then he sleeps through til morning. We take some some cot toys with us, the same ones that are in his cot at home. And he uses the same sheets and blankets and sleeping bag that he has at home. And we try to follow the same bedtime routine that we use at home. He is also entirely happy to play in the travel cot during the day, so we pop him in it for a few minutes to get him used to it when we get to the place we're staying at. He's also entirely happy visiting new places and new people and is usually running about playing within just a few minutes of arriving somewhere new. But the minute he goes into his travel for bed, all hell breaks loose for those 10 or 20 minutes that I mentioned. Any suggestions?
