I posted about my dd sleeping pattern last night, today. And I was expected some ff moms to reply with how great their kids sleep, which I got. So I replied with how she just wakes for comfort feedings and she also digests her food faster then ff babies. Well, this is a friends respond. Keep in mind, she isnt one of the moms who previously posted to it and I believe she also bf for a few months as well.
look you are doing the right thing breastfeeding, but it is now time for her to be sleeping through the night and you are going to have to go through some time of letting her cry. I would suggest setting your alarm for a single feeding on a time she doesn't normally wake up for about 3 days, then to none. Nobody (including babies) like being woken up when they are sleeping and it will reinforce her to feed more deeply and stay asleep, since no-one is coming to pick her up when she wakes in the night. It will be hard, but embrace the suck because it means entire nights of sleep for you and the longer you let this go on the harder it will be as she gets older.
How should I take this, or do with it at all?
