My hubby is convinced that the reason our 1 year old DD has sleep issues is because I nursed her, and that with our next kid if we formula feed there won't be any issues. I don't really know what to tell him, so I guess I'm wondering/hoping that this isn't true and some babies just doesn't like to sleep...what do you think?Answer Question

First, I think he is jealous, of the time you can only spend with your DD,breastfeeding and he can't. Second, all babies are different. Your DD has sleeping issue, and your breastfeeding her,breastfeeding is probably not the reason. You should breastfeed your next to, you might not have sleeping issues with him/her, just because he/she is a different person. Every baby is different.

I know breast fed babies that slept through the night from almost day one, then I know formula fed babies that didn't sleep through the night till they were 18mos old how you feed has very little to do with how they sleep. I nursed all mine some slept through the night with in the first few months some took over a year ... all with the same method of feeding all kids in the same family. It's just the baby next one you have you could nurse and get totally different results.
