for my baby ... and I hate not being able to help her!
I nurse her whenever she wants to, and carry her in a sling etc, but nursing seems irritating to her when she is too tired - then she prefers falling asleep in my husbands arms (because he doesn't smell breastmilk?, but he's not always around.
My other babies could almost always be nursed or carried to sleep, so this is a bit disturbing for me. I try not to stress and just be present for her in the moment, but I think it is hard. Especially at night.
I find that I need to try to help her fall back to sleep very soon after she has woken up, she gets overly tired easily, and then it is even harder for her to go back to sleep again.
She likes it better if I wrap a blanket around her.
How do your babies fall asleep? Easily, I hope!
