I was told by my Dr. As well as the kid's pediatrician that it is not nutritionally necessary for babies over 6 months to nurse at night and that it is a comfort mechanism. In fact my first dd began sleeping through the night all on her own. I never even sleep trained her.
Here is my question, and the is a sincere question. I could do without the condescension and shaming. No mom needs to be berated when they are seeking advice. That isn't what this forum is for. I am pregnant with #4 and planned to treat this baby as all of my others... We usually stop Co sleeping and start night weaning around 7 months or so. I have spent the last day searching online and I can't find anything that backs up what everyone is saying about how breastfed babies must nurse on demand until 1 or they may fail to thrive. In fact everything I have found supports what our Dr's. Say. Can some one point me to the resources where you get this information? I even looked at some stuff about Dr. Gordon but I couldn't find any evidence to counter- just what he recommended. Please remember that this is a real question. I am going to have another baby and I can't find the answers I am looking for. I want resources too, please, not just advice.
