My 3.5 month old can still only sleep with my nipple in his mouth and refuses a pacifier. Will this go away as he gets older?? I don’t want to let him cry but also want to help him self soothe to set him up for success later
Did it seriously censor the word n i p p l e lol now my question looks weird
Hi @Mama531 - good catch!! Our platform automatically censors a number of words and we keep finding ones that are useful to discuss in the community but are blocked. I just removed nipple from the list of censored words so it shows up in your post now :) Thanks for calling that out!
I'm following this amazing sleep coach person who confirms how normal this is for our babies.
My son never took to breastfeeding but my daughter did. She is now 8 months and still mostly feeds to sleep. I have tried sleep training but now I just accept its how she has comfort and she has started only waking a couple of times and slept through last night. (I broke all the rules and rocked her last night as teeth are making her sad 😔)
