How can I teach my baby self settling without distrupting my sons routine?

My daughter is almost 12 months old and she will not sleep on her own. She is slowly getting better, up until about 2 months ago, she would only fall asleep while i was feeding her. But now she is happy just going to sleep in my arms (most of the time anyway.) I have a son also who is 2 years old and they share a room. How can I teach my baby self settling without distrupting my sons routine? Also my fiance has a hard time with her crying (even if it does help in the long run) How can I make it so that all 3 parties are happy?

Answer: Hi,
It is difficult when your partner does not agree with a change of routine and when you don`t want to disturb other siblings.
Perhaps you should visit mum or a family friend who can support you for a week or so with a new routine.

Cheers, Maree
