I am very happy with the rhythm that my daughter (6 months) and I have. The reason I am posting this question/concern is that she will be having surgery in the next month and a half or so - and we will not be able to continue our habits.
We have been EBF since she came home from the hospital the first time around. It's been going really well for the most part. The only times she nurses now is when she goes to sleep (nap time, bed time) and upon waking. She is eating more than enough. Gaining weight - poo poo diapers etc.
Here's the "concern". If she isn't nursed to sleep she will cry and cry and cry until she goes to sleep. She has always been like that and then we finally figured out a way to have her go to sleep peacefully - for both of us. This requires nursing.
Unfortunately I will not be able to be with her at the hospital 24/7 and when I am not with her the nurses will have to nap her - sleep her.
Any advice on how teach her to sleep without nursing and crying? Before the nursing solution - we rocked her until she cried and cried and cried and then passed out. It seems that these days I (mommy) am the only one who can sleep her peacefully. I just think I would like to find a way to help her to sleep without me so her stay at the hospital will be more pleasant.
Thanks in advance for all of your help!
