The doctor wanted me to keep Emily up after nursing for 5 min at least to encourage her not to associate nursing with sleeping but that really isn't working, especially at night.
How do you get your baby to sleep (and stay asleep) at night? We have been nursing to sleep and then moving her to the cradle. Sometimes I fall asleep nursing and move her as soon as I wake up and realize she is asleep. With Nicholas we used to have to walk him around to get him to sleep so nursing for me is easier and more restful than walking. Also, sometimes we have to put her on our chest because she is a snuggle bunny and loves the warmth and hearing our heartbeat. I don't think we started sleep training Nicholas until closer to 4 months old. I hope I'm not establishing horrible habits but at this point I am so sleep deprived I will do whatever will work.
