Sebastian turned 9 months on the 16th so we had his well visit today. He weighs 23lbs13oz and is 28.25". His gain has come to a halt since 6 months but I'm not worried, he's still a big boy. :) He has never had a drop of formula, neither did his sister (who is now unbelievably 6 years old)! Anyhow...one thing his Dr mentioned made me a little uneasy. My dd co slept from day 1. We never tried to put her in a crib until around a year...which obviously was a fail. So she co slept until she turned 4. Most people gasp in disgust at that but we have no regrets.
Fast forward. Seb falls asleep at the bbreast, always has. I lay him down after he's asleep and he's good for a couple hrs. He wakes like clockwork at 1, 4:30 and 6:30 to nurse. He just latches and goes back to sleep though, and so do I...together. His Dr today called it something...train something. She said he doesn't need to nurse at night and I need to break him of that.
Thoughts? Why do I have to break it? Should I? I do not believe in CIO so if he wakes upset I won't leave him to cry. What are my alternatives? I wouldn't MIND sleeping more than 3 hrs at a time, lol but not at the expense of my baby.
