    Default Feeding to sleep...

    To the woman who have bf to sleep with there bubs, has anyone experienced bubs weaning themselves off? My DS has fed to sleep since birth (It is what we were both comfortable with no negative comments please) but in the last week it seems DS has just decided it isn't happening anymore. Not only will he not feed to sleep at night he won't go to sleep any other way either. We used to feed to sleep around 9pm and he would be fine with it. Now he cries for his 9pm feed will feed for an hour (screaming if I stop) then he will just want to play again until 11:30! He is just screaming so much! I don't really know what I'm asking, I guess have your bubs done this and just gone back to fts or do I have to start self settling?

    How old is he? I'd go with it regardless.

    I always fed DS1 to sleep and do the same for DS2. DS1 stopped just before he weaned completely before he was 2. He would go to sleep for anyone else fine without but wanted me if I was there. I don't see DS2 stopping yet, he is 14 months.

    Do you think there could be something else? Overtired, teething etc?

    He is just gone 5 months. I am not coping with this new routine. I don't know what to do.

    How big is your bub? By five months I couldn't keep up with him and ended up starting solids at dinner (just purées) and comp feeding with formula before bed. He still fed overnight but that bottle helped him get a goodish patch of sleep first up.

    Up the solids and make sure bub isn't getting too much sleep during the day. What's your day routine like?

    DD weaned herself off feeding to sleep but I can't remember how old she was. It's annoying!! BF'ing to sleep is calming, relaxing, I could do it lying down in bed and she would drift off to the land of nod... Babies like to keep us on our toes!! Just when you think you've got them figured out they go and change their routine/pattern, darn it! I always found a good bath/boob/bed routine helped. Lots of dim lights, no loud noises, sit on the swiss ball and bounce them off to sleep.

    Sounds like teething to me. Persevere. Kellymom.com has great bf info, have a look at this article.

    I fed all 3 of my boys to sleep, great way to soothe kids IMO, and in the end had to knock it on the head, as they were never going to self wean, (they were all 3yrs+ at this stage)

    I think he is about 5.5kgs. I didn't give solids yesterday and he went to sleep so much better. I saw the doctor today for me and she said ds seems to have seperation anxiety already and that might by why he isn't wanting to sleep.
