My son is 3 months old and because he’s our first we love to carry him. So eventually he has gotten used to being carried to sleep. This along with patting his bum and swaying. He’s getting harder and harder not to mention heavier to get to bed now. He also uses a pacifier to get him to sleep. Unless if he’s in a deep sleep the pacifier falls out without a problem but if he is still half awake and It falls out he then wakes up looking for it. I do the usual when he wakes which is eat, play, sleep and he goes down easy but now I think it’s time to get him to put himself to sleep. I don’t know whether to stop with the pacifier first or just go straight to trying to sleep on his own. If anyone has some useful suggestions please help me out. Thanks in advance.
