I have to qualify that statement a whole lot, but it's still a first.
- She has fallen asleep at bedtime without nursing before, for her father a few times, and for the babysitter once - though not for a long time.
- She falls asleep without nursing in the car, in the stroller, and even in the middle of the night. It's just falling asleep at bedtime that's been the sticking point for, well, ever.
- She did nurse yesterday evening, but (because she'd had a nap) was then wide awake again (demanding waffle, water, music, etc) before finally falling asleep.
Given all those reservations, I'm sort of surprised by this - but all evening I have to admit that I had an odd sense of impending freedom.
