I've heard some parents let their babies cry to sleep... I've tried but it totally breaks my heart and I always end up giving in to her.
I've spoiled my DD in letting her feed to sleep and now that she's 7 months, I really want her to become less depenent on my breasts to fall asleep...

Letting babies/toddlers nurse to sleep is the way they are supposed to fall asleep. The lactation hormones flow from mother to baby through the milk and relax baby and put baby to sleep. You want babies and toddlers to be dependent. Part of the problem with our society is that we force independence from the time our babies are born and then we have problems with relationships the rest of our lives. Babies are supposed to be dependent. I can't stress that enough. It's crazy to worry that a 7 mo is too dependent on breasts to fall asleep.
