Nursing and rocking baby... okay?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Just a question: my DS is 8 weeks old and we just bought a glider to rock him to sleep (we tried not to get one, but realized he likes to be rocked to sleep). But now I'm rocking him while I nurse, even when he might not be tired yet, whereas before I'd nurse him and then rock him to sleep on the glider out on our deck.

Is this a bad habit? Should I nurse him stationary, then when he starts to nod off rock him? Or is it fine to rock him the entire time? I worry that the glider is looing it's "sleeping" affect, and that when it does work he falls asleep before getting enough milk.

Kind of a silly question, but thought I'd ask.

Thanks!

Do whatever is keeping baby and mom healthiest and happiest! Forget about habits!

I would not worry about it at all- your baby will let you know if and when more milk is needed.
