Like the boys always did. She nurses to sleep sometimes, but prefers to be rocked or worn in the wrap to fall alseep. My boys nursed to sleep like 99% pf the time, so this is very different for me.

Quoting Precious333:

Lol, i lay her down with the wrap still on her. I loosen it, come down with her and sneak my head out. Lol




Quoting Heymamashakeit:

My DD always nursed to sleep. My Q is, how in the world do you get baby out of the wrap, still asleep, and stay asleep?

Yeah, i miss not working to get baby to sleep, especially at night when i want to just lay down.


Quoting Katt709:

My 2nd didn't either. It was frustrating at first. But he just wanted to be held in your chest and patted until he fell asleep. Once I figured that out it was perfect. This one -our 3rd- nurses to sleep most if the time and I find it much easier!

I wonder this too. My son was attached to my boob - often nursing for 30-45 minutes at a time. Anytime he cried, nursing calmed him down. My daughter nurses for like 5-10 minutes tops and screams if milk comes out when she is full. She responds well to rocking to put her to sleep but nursing does too.

You know, i was wondering this! I know it may be a generalization, but are boys morr attached to nursing than.girls?


Quoting MamaPrime:

I know I will get lit up for this- but in my experience as a postpartum doula- more boys nursed to sleep than girls. Yes, I know it is a broad generalization and no two babies are the same. BUT I definately observed a high rate of boys nursing to sleep than girls and more girls wanted to nurse for food only-not just for comfort.

I think they are more comforted by the food and warmth nursing provides than girls are. Just like the one phrase goes "the way to a man's heart is through his stomach" I kinda think that applies to babies too.
