Nursing ALL night....help!

My LO is 4 months. She usually nurses to sleep, I put her in her crib and she will sleep 3-4  hours before waking up to feed.


The last few nights she screams as soon as I put her down in the crib, so we started co-sleeping. But she cries until I nurse her and stays latched/nursing ALL night. I can't sleep with her latched. Any ideas?

Growth spurt, teething, new milestones. Those are the biggest culprits of sleep disturbance!

Normal stuff. At four months and at 3.5 weeks.

The cure is time.

Are you a working mama?

If so it is not abnormal for the child to reverse their feeding patterns, less bottled breast milk during the day, and more frequent nursing at night.

if you are a SAHM, it could be a growth spurt, or maybe she is feeling a little yucky, does she have a cold?

Yes, I just went back to work a few weeks ago. Maybe that's it?

Very likely. They will make up for the missing mommy time however they can do it.

But know that sleep patterns will change often in year one, nursing through the night is actually normal and sleeping through the night is a mere five hours.

When I went back to work, my daughter did this to me.
Though it was exhausting it helped with a couple of things, 1) it helped so that I wasn't running out of breast milk during the day (I was only able to pump four 5-7oz bottle a day) this way she never needed formula.
2) it helped me as well as her restore that bonding time we were losing during the day. 3) it helped me not get my period back until she was almost 18 months old.
If you co-sleep and can adjust to this change go with it. I don't have any advice on how to fix it unfortunately because I just went with the flow.
Good luck.
