How do I wing my daughter from latching on just to go to sleep using me like a pacifier. Even when I give a bottle to put her to sleep she'll stay up and talk into she gets hungry again then wants latch on. Sometimes she acts fussy to latch on but not really thursty cause milk is running down her mouth when she falls asleep. She will be 5 months in one week

Nurse in a dark, quiet room. She may need the nursing as she might be headed for a growth spurt. I wouldn't let het lie down with a bottle; it can cause choking and dental decay.

She isn't using you as a pacifier. ...Pacifiers are used like moms.

Well first she's using you how she's supposed to, pacifiers are a mom replacement. WOuldn't you want the real thing instead of a plastic replacement? lol Also it's pretty normal for the age, I have nothing really except you shouldn't be giving a bottle if you're there & able to nurse. It could cause supply problems & flow preference.

Oh, that's easy. Just leave her. **grin** Really. Children will do things for others that they will NEVER EVER do for their parents: wash dishes, take out the trash, sleep without nursing!

It really is amazing what they'll do when we're not around!
