    Default Feeding to sleep

    Anyone have older kids that they fed to sleep when little, that now as bigger kids go to sleep themselves?

    Baby is 12 months old now, feeds to sleep and comfort sucks every 2 hours.

    I night weaned at 18 months, but my DD happily goes to sleep without boob most of the time.
    If she is overtired or upset, then boob is needed to comfort her. She is 2 and a bit

    My DS is 19 months and was fed to sleep at night until 16 months and we have just stopped the daytime feeding to sleep in the last week. We attended sleep school to night wean as I was exhausted from the 2 hourly comfort feeds. We are both so much better for it as I didn't realise he was also very tired from waking that often. I now have a happy little boy and he sleeps all night.

    I nursed DS to sleep until he was 18 months, we swapped that feed with a cup of cold milk....and it helped that it was summer at the time, so transition was easy for DS (now 2 years 4 months)

    I remember though that the community nurse would make me feel really guilty when l was nursing him to sleep at 12 months.

    I did have him sleeping on his own. But circumstances and development saw him regress. I how lay with him till he's asleep to stop the anxiety. He usually sleeps the night in his own bed though
