I've been in the habit of rocking my 7 month old to sleep, even for her naps. Now when I want to lay her down, she can't put herself to sleep, she cries right away and thinks it's normal for me to rock her. Also, in the middle of the night when I get up to nurse her, we fall asleep on the couch and then she has access to suckling for the rest of the night. It's just easier. Are these bad habits to get into? I'm worried it's gonna come back to bite me in the butt. Should I try to let her be more independent and put herself back to sleep? And how do I do this? Thanks!
