I fully weaned Mia one week ago. I am a little sad now but it is too late... Anyway, I have been having DH put Mia to sleep because she normally nursed to sleep every night. I tried last night to put her to sleep and everytime she fell asleep I would try and put her in the crib and she would wake up and scream. This went on for 30 minutes. Finally DH went up and she was sleeping quitely within 10 minutes. DH is going out of town the week after next and I need to be able to put her to sleep. Anyone have tips?

Hello & welcome to the board

How old is Mia?

If it was me, I'd definately have me try for the next few nights to get her used to you. When you laid her down and she cried, what did you do? Did you pick her up or try to soothe her in the cot?

Mia is 15 1/2 months. I picked her back up after she started screaming. I tried to just rub her back and she stood up in the crib and put her arms out. I chickened out last night and had DH put her to sleep. She has been teething super bad the past couple days, the last of 4 molars cutting through. I think that was the problem... I am going to try again tonight. She likes massages so I might try and get her to lay on my tummy and give her a massage.

Hopefully her teething will be better by the time dh leaves. Let us know how it goes!
