When Blake was a little itty bitty you could put him down in the bassinet awake and he'd just fall asleep on his own. Colby now that is a different story. (see this just goes into my whole thing of my boys are soooo opposite each other!)
Colby wants to be held and cuddled and fall asleep in your arms or on your lap. He would gladly lay there all day/night if you let him. I have found that he will fall asleep on his play mat if he's on his stomach, but I can't let him sleep on his stomach at night, or when I'm not RIGHT THERE with him.
I'm not looking forward to having to train him to fall asleep on his own. We had some issues with that with Blake when he was older and had to do the cry it out thing (no I'm not opening a debate on if this is a good technique or not!). I can already foresee that in our future with Colby too.
Oh well.. until then I will often be blogging one handed as Colby lays on me to fall asleep
