Re: 2yo won't sleep without bf
I enjoyed the predictability of knowing that I could nurse my toddlers to sleep. when ever I felt doubtful of my own instincts I would envision my ancestors. I would ask myself., how did early man survive and what behaviors did the early mothers rely on to keep her precious children safe?
but just like our ancestors we need our sleep and we need to set guidelines.
"No twiddling mommas nipples, here is a toy to twiddle instead."
love and kisses momma needs to sleep now. 4 of my children are now all grown and have left the nest. None of them nurse to sleep anymore.
