Can you explain this to me? How are we designed to nurse to sleep? If that is true why do adults fall asleep without it. I am very confused about this comment.
I don't want to speak for Alegna, but I believe that breastmilk has an enzyme (or some other component that my non-scientific mind can't think of) that naturally makes babies sleepy. So, it makes you wonder - if nature intended for breastmilk to make babies fall asleep, why are we all so worried when our babies nurse to sleep?
My DS is 10 mos and the only way he will fall asleep in bed is nursing. It can take me up to 8 attempts to unlatch and sneak away. I used to think it was adorable but now I'm wondering if I've created a bad habit - nobody else can put him down for naps or bedtime.
And my husband would like him moved into his own bed soon... I don't imagine how we might accomplish this right now.
Anyone else have thoughts or experience with this?
