my 6 month old has always slept in my bed and has slept through the night since she was 6 wks old. she is teething nowand is real fussy at night so i bf her inn bed and we both fall back asleeep she is up every two hours to eat she eats for about ten minuts then back to sleep is this a habbit that will be hard to break ????its like she knows im right there so she "milks" it ( no point intended) has any other moms done this before if so ??????

Yup with my other two and will do the same with the next am due in March,I am just a milk machine,my husband calls me a cow and says I must have filled a whole milk truck by now. I gave my kids teething tablets until they were too much weight and the tablets didn't work,then I switched to children's tyleno; chewables.

Emma's not even teething yet and I let her sleep in bed with me and nurse whenever she wants. It's just easier to get a night's sleep that way!

i sleep with isabelle in my bed and i nurse her whenever she makes a peep. she usually sucks for a couple minutes then goes back to sleep. she usually only wakes up once or twice. she's about 3 months btw

We go back & forth, depends on how tired I am. Usually in the beginning ofthe week she'll be in her crib & I'll go in there & nurse her in the rocking chair, and towards the end of the week I'm mor etired so after the first wake-up she'sin the bed with me. She has no problem going back & forth - yet. I also read if you are bf and working, so pumping during the week, its better for supply to have them in the bed or at least right next to you during the night because they tend to nurse more often than if they are sleeping in another room.
