Rocking To Sleep

Hi guys, I have a question -- I have always rocked my dd to sleep, it has always been a special time for me and my dh to spend with our dd and she always goes to sleep right away -- but...... she is now 11 months old and getting pretty big and I was just wondering from those of you who rock to sleep, at what age did you make a transition? When the baby moves to a toddler bed? Anyone with experience in this regard, let me know your tips! I know we cant rock her forever, but I would like to make it as trauma-free as possible.

my friend used to rock her daughter to sleep as well. She is now 18 months old and what they've been doing has worked for them. They started to sit in bed with her and rock while sitting in bed with the tv on while she drank her bottle. That worked, so they stopped the rocking part. Now all they do is lay down in bed with her for about 20-30 minutes and she is out. I do remember her getting mad though when they tried to rock her while sitting in bed, LOL, but she got over it in about a week.
