  • Toddler can only fall asleep in motion

    I'm hoping someone can offer some advice on helping transition my 18-month-old who seems to have entered a phase where he usually needs to take a walk outside in the stroller in order to fall asleep (this is even true during night wakings--nursing him back to sleep is no longer working consistently). We co-sleep, so when he wakes in the night and can't manage to nurse back to sleep he simply gets out of bed and wants to talk and play, even though he is really sleepy. I didn't mind being awakened at night to nurse, but having to get up, get dressed and walk outside at odd hours of the night is really becoming exhausting and frustrating. I would be so appreciative of any advice. Thank you!
