Totally my fault cause I've fallen into the trap of doing what's easy so we can all get some sleep, but now, at nearly 5 months, my DS (exclusively breast fed) needs feeding back to sleep every time he wakes in the night, which on a good night is every 2 and a half hours and on a bad night is every 45 minutes 🤪
Sometimes it's just a 2 minute boob suck and he's back to sleep, sometimes it's 10 mins, either way it's not a huge problem as he's in a next to me crib so it's easy enough, I just know it NEEDS to stop as it's no good for either of us in the long run.
When he gets to 6 months, if I can get him sleeping longer, I'd like to move him into his big boys cot in his own room, and I'd really like to get more sleep myself!!! But at the moment if he wakes he needs a boob to nod back off.
So, tried and tested methods please to break this boob/sleep association pleeeeease.
FYI he's a bit hit and miss with a dummy. Never taken one but recently seems a little keener, just nothing consistent yet.
Thank you!!! Xxx
