Re: No schedule...setting us up for misery??
Oh Lordy lord. Your pediatrician owes you a refund for giving such dumb advice. She got you to worry so much about things that might happen in the future that she has you contemplating plunging yourself into a world of misery NOW. Let's say you move your baby to the crib, stop nursing at night, and stop feeding on demand. What's that going to get you? A miserable, hungry baby who still wakes in the night, and still needs your help to get back to sleep, and who cannot understand why you won't just give him the simplest, most natural form of comfort in the world. Maybe someday in the future this misery will buy you a baby who sleeps through the night in the crib, because he has given up on wasting his calories crying for you. And maybe it won't: as Djs.mom correctly points out, you have a lot of milestones and a lot of teething to get through before you baby can be expected to sleep through on a routine basis. Even heavily scheduled babies who have cried-it-out from an early age will resume night-waking when they are learning to crawl or stand or popping new teeth.
Whether or not you move your baby to the crib is much less important than continuing to feed on demand. Schedules are the enemy of successful breastfeeding, because milk supply is created by demand. If you limit demand by scheduling feedings, or stretching the intervals between feedings, you're very likely to end up with reduced supply and a miserable baby who does not gain enough weight to thrive and grow.
Your doc should have said "You're doing great! Keep on doing what you're doing and everything will be fine."
