Quoting Mama Lizzy :]:" <blockquote><b>Quoting Peyton'sMommy♥:</b>" How old is he? Peyton can lay on ... [snip!] ... how to put him to sleep without nursing him...he cries for it. If I rock him to sleep he wakes up as soon as I put him down."
Does he have a nap schedule? If so, nurse him right before nap time (if it's a normal feeding time), then lay him down in bed, say goodnight and walk out. I don't know how he'll react but it's worth a try.
I had always been able to just lay DD in bed and walk out and she put herself to sleep. I hope DS is the same way!
