    Nighttime routine

    I've been procrastinating changing our bedtime routine. I've been breastfeeding our little one to sleep all along. She's 17 weeks today, and I really need to change things up. I also still swaddle her for overnight. She seems to stay asleep 6-7 hours that way. Naps in the daytime are swaddle free but she'll startle herself awake.

    Has anyone else gone this long breastfeeding to sleep and how was the battle to change? How did it go for those that stopped swaddling? Any little pointers that may make our process just a little easier? TIA

    I bottle feed to sleep. Don't swaddle though. Basically our routine is bath, book, bottle, bed. She falls asleep in my arms with her bottle.

    I don't plan to change this anytime soon. DS grew out of it naturally. We did bedtime milk for a long time with his story, then he would brush his teeth after. I think we stopped the milk before bed when he turned 3. I don't remember how old he was when he started going to sleep by himself, but it was before 2.
