Whats so wrong about feeding my 5mth old to sleep?
I was told to stop this "habit" as it will cause 'snack feeding' and it means no one else will be able to put him to sleep any other way...Well, im the one with him all day long so im the one who has to put him to sleep?! I was also told he is not learning to put himself to sleep - what 5mth old does?! We can deal with that when he's older?
Im sick of the fighting and screaming happening in my arms while i rock him off to sleep (which doesnt work anymore) if i dont feed him to sleep. Its become too stressful, he cries himself to sleep and i hate it. Cat naps too, probably because he went to sleep so upset.
It takes 3mins and he's out like a light, i can pop him straight into bed and he will sleep 1-2hrs. He is obviously telling me he wants this and likes this. Why would i not do this for him, he's just a baby wanting comfort and he knows where to get it from.
