Do/did you sleep train your baby while co-sleeping and night nursing?...I feel like my son is not learning to fall asleep on his own because every time he wakes up at night I just nurse him right back down.
I don't mind this so much now because he is only 5 months old,but what happens when he is a year old and doesn't need to nurse all night-how will be know how to go back to sleep on his own if I don't teach him somehow?...I am starting to get a little exhausted from nursing 5-6 times a night just because I'm not getting any more than 2 hours straight at night...Suggestions?
Guess what? It's not the truth. You don't need to DO anything. It's a natural process. Baby WILL learn to do that, on his own timetable, without being trained or forced or taught. You've got to let him mature at his own pace, while respecting HIS needs - and right now, nursing to sleep & cosleeping is a NEED - and a RIGHT. ALL infants should sleep with their mothers & nurse on cue - you're doing the right thing. GOOD FOR YOU! Don't cave to the convenience parenting dogma out there.
