We had our 6 month checkup today, which went overall pretty well. Our pediatrician is very pro-extended-bf, but apparently is anti-co-sleeping. Not for safety reasons, which I was anticipating, but because he says it makes it harder to get LO to sleep in her own bed. I wanted to ask "What's wrong with that?" but held my tongue. He also said it's not normal for her to want to nurse all night, that she should be able to sleep through the night and most breastfed six month olds can.
Now, I know alot of formula and cereal babies will sleep through the night, but breastmilk is digested alot faster, so I assumed she wouldn't really sleep through the night till she's eating solids well. At any rate, I'm going to continue following her cues, and not go by what "everyone" is doing.
Any opinions here?
