I used to rock Carter to sleep with his bottle. After we got rid of the bottle, we changed the routine a bit and I sat on the couch for "quiet time". During "quiet time" I always bounce or shake my leg (so essentially rocking still). Up until this past monday, he always fell asleep in my arms and I took him to his crib. Starting monday he will not fall asleep with me and I put him to bed awake. I should be happy that he wants to self-settle, but I am sad. My baby won't fall asleep with me anymore. I used to use this time to steal kisses. Sounds so pathetic really.
