    Default If you feed to sleep at night...

    How long does it take you and how old is your bubs/toddler?

    My bubs is 3 months and will take usually an hour at least. But once she's down she's down for at least x hours, which is reassuring.

    How about you? :-)

    I don't do it every night, but when I do it takes anywhere from 5 mins to half an hour. Depends how tired he is I guess he's 16 months.

    It probably takes about 45 minutes for the feed that actually puts Dd to sleep but she's a bit of a cluster feeder in the evenings so some nights we feed on and off for hours. She's 3.5 months old. We do get a 5 - 6 hour stretch of sleep after that.

    My DD is 14 months and it takes about 20-30 mins usually to fall asleep feeding at night. When she was younger it was a bit longer. I just sit on my phone (like now!) to pass the time

    Ds2 takes 10 min once he asks for boob. But he is fighting with it at the moment as we are weaning. He is 21 months.

    Usually an hour too but sometimes cluster feed from 4. He is usually very unsettled from 4pm. DS is 12 weeks. He then goes down for 5-7 hours

    Between 5 minutes to 45 minutes. He is 2. I have fed all 6 of mine to sleep. A hour was normally for some of mine but it usually was only for a few weeks than it would be shorter again.

    I know about those! Still got one at nearly 3! He wakes up more than the baby by far :-(
    So over it!! Feel for you.

    I'm still nursing DD who is almost 2.5.
    She can take a while to sleep and has never slept through the night. She wakes up around 3 times and pretty much helps herself to a feed.

    I would love for her to stop, I miss unbroken sleep.

    @anewme, can I please ask at what age your other kids stopped feeding to sleep at night? My DD can't fall asleep without feeding or being pushed in her pram and feel like she'll never just get into her cot and go to sleep on her own! Never had this with my first baby, I feel like I've set up a bad habit so hoping she'll just grow out of it! Thanks
