Eh, that sounds overly dramatic to me. Your Dr. needs to calm down.
At that age I put them to bed asleep, usually it wasn't even a choice, they'd just fall asleep during the bedtime routine. lol Eventually as they got older just continued to follow the routine and would just lay them down at the end of it, awake or asleep.
To me it's a personal preference, not a medical issue.
I think I would be switching doctors.
I have four children. All of them I held and loved on and even fed right before sleep. None of them have any issues.
Lol my kids must be very damaged then. They always fell asleep in my arms when they were babies.
You need a new doctor, lol.
Yeah I would be finding a new doctor.
Your doctor is being overly dramatic.
Future damage...to what exactly? I've been told you can make them 'like too much hand' and then you have to be holding them all the time but my four haven't been damaged at all. Lol.
