    I don't know the background story here but I have always said it's easy to be the perfect parent with all the answers with one baby! It's probably why no. 2 is always different to no. 1, they stop the parents from being too cocky! haha

    ETA - wow this post is messed up. I wanted to quote stretched.[/QUOTE]

    I am so grateful DS1 was so difficult... had DS2 been my first I would have been such an annoying parent, he's a dream.

    Fed my DS to sleep up until the end of our BF journey at 18 months. I can't think of a single issue that came from it it was a wonderful bonding experience

    I've fed both of mine to sleep DD1 was BF and no issues, she stopped at about 12 months and was happy to go to bed at bedtime awake or asleep.

    DD2 I did when she was BF and I still do at 10 months and she's now FF. It works for us and she's a great sleeper (apart from teething... Then she's a horrible sleeper ha)

    I fed all three of mine to sleep. They are 8, 6 and 2.5 now and it's a time I look back on with a lot of fondness.

    Me too! Now that DD2 is FF... DH and I actually fight to do the bedtime bottle. I love sitting down and snuggling with them before bed

    I worried about this 'rule' too with my first. By 4 mths I learnt quickly that there are no rules, just common sense. I helped my boy learn to fall asleep many diff ways early but def fed to sleep throughout his first yr when needed. I loved it and glad I learned quick it doesn't ruin them. On a scale of 0-10 DS1 is a 9 sleeper. ☺️ Slept through early, minimal disruptions to his sleep through development/regressions & sickness.
    Someone did make a valid point though. If it makes you happy and bub sleeps for others too, then what's the harm. If it starts to effect you then mix up how you put bub down xx
    Enjoy the snuggles..

    My dd2 is 10months and I've fed her to sleep from the minute she was born. I was determined to do things different than first time around with dd1 who I was only able to bf for 3 months. Feeding to sleep has been relaxing and enjoyable for me, I have loved those special cuddles. However, I wish I had stopped doing it months ago. Her sleep had gotten progressively worse. She wakes more times over night than I can possibly count starting with at least 3 times before I go to bed. As the cycle continued I have become more and more tired and give in to her desire to use me as a dummy. So much so, that from about 3am onwards she often sleeps permanently attached to the boob. I have not had a full nights sleep since she was born, not even close. It's really affected the whole family because she won't settle for dh, it means we have very little time together, i get next to no time without her (day and night), it makes going out stressful because I worry about her and the person I have left her with (dh, grandma or Nonna). So, with all that said, we are off to a sleep and settling clinic tomorrow and I hope we leave changed for the better with as few tears as possible.
