Re: boobs, beds, and babies

I highly recommend the no cry sleep solution. A large part of it for nursers and/or cosleepers, is to break bad habits. If she is used to falling asleep at the breast, nurse her until she is ALMOST asleep, then latch off. She'll root, get back on, count to 10 - try again. And again. And again. Eventually, she'll get lazy and give up. The theory is, if she know she can't sleep with it in her mouth, she won't wake for it unless she is truly hungry. It's also a good idea to scoot away from their body once they are asleep so they know they can sleep without your arm under them or their body touching yours. Anyhow, the book is really helpful with night wakings for nursing.
