My first two children were fed expressed breast milk. My third child was successfully breastfed for the first 6months. My first two were great sleepers. Slept throughout the night from 6 weeks and could self settle. My third always seems to need me to fall asleep. She used to always fall asleep on the boob and now I feel she wants me near her or holding her to fall asleep as a result. Has anyone had a similar experience?
I let her cry herself to sleep for her day nap and she does nap after 15 minutes of so. But at night she falls asleep in my arms or next to me and if she wakes during the night she won’t stop crying unless we collect her from the cot. Then she ends up sleeping in our bed, cause we’re too tired to with it.
