Sparrows- good luck on the GBS, but it really is not too big a deal if you have it. I didn't with no 1, did with 2 and altogether #2 was a much smoother birth
Erica and Andaluza- waiting to hear about your births!
LIly- I agree with Scowgirl- nurse on demand. It will help your milk supply and her ability. They do sometimes just nurse for comfort and there is nothing wrong with that except they might spit up the excess.
Lily and Scowgirl-Everybody has their own @$#%#^ opinion about how we take care of our kids and since they won't willing butt out, we have to just smile and ignore them. My DD's both wanted to be held to sleep when they were tiny. DD2 at almost 8 weeks is beginning to sleep longer stretches on her own during the day, but still sometimes she just wants to be held and I think that is her right as a little tiny baby adjusting to the outside world. I only let her cry if I need to put her down for a few minutes to get something out of the oven or go to the bathroom, or in the car seat. I just keep trying to put her down on her own- sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't and it keeps changing. I think as she gets older, she will need to be held less. Lately nursing her to sleep side lying on the bed and sneaking away is working pretty good at bedtime. She is also a co-sleeping baby-wants to be curled up next to mom, but I am ok with that. She is also sleeping longer stretches at night. My pediatrician said that after they hit 12 pounds they are much more likely to come closer to sleeping through the night. Typical for us is still about 3 hours, but we have got almost 5 a few times and that feels awesome!
