My husband and I just started putting our little one in his crib to sleep at night, we literally started tonight.. I wanted to know if and when i should stop night time feedings?
Up until tonight my little one slept in bed with us and any time he would fuss I would nurse him and we would both fall back to sleep until the next time he wanted to eat. Since we have now moved him into his own crib I wanted to know what everyone thinks about how often I should nurse?
I still believe in demand nursing during the day, but that doesn't mean I want to get up every 2-3 hours to nurse him at night... It would completely defeat the point of putting him in his own bed.
He has always had a problem with sleeping and napping. The final straw for me was when I thought he was down for a nap today and decided to try and take a quick shower, I didn't even get the shampoo out of my hair before he was up screaming... needless to say I can't keep going on like this. I love him and I want to do what is best for him and for my family.. That being said my husband and I found a program that we were comfortable with that would help our little one fall asleep on his own. It only took an hour and 15 minutes for him to finally fall fast asleep, but my new concern is night feedings and how many if at all I should be doing?
Any help would be much appreciated.
