Those who feed to sleep, how many takes does it take? Lately when I feed DS to sleep - he's fast asleep and when I put him down he's wide awake and starts crying. Am I supposed to just then try and rock him to sleep, or try and feed him again?
It seems all I do now is feed him, burp him, put him down, he wakes, I pick him up again, feed him, he falls asleep, I burp him, put him down he wakes and repeat 3 or 4 times before he sleeps (generally at night time) or after 2 or 3 times in the day he's wide awake and I give up.
I try and keep him awake while he feeds but especially at night he just passes it on the boob. Feeding to sleep is meant to make settling easier, not harder. I would try and wean him off feeding to sleep, but the other settling alternatives seem impossible with a demanding toddler always around.
