Bub will only sleep at the breast Rss

hello,

My 5 and a half month old baby girl will only fall asleep at the breast or in the car. it is becoming a nightmare for me because whenever she gets sleepy i have to lay down with her and feed her until she falls asleep or if we are out and she is tred she will most likely fall asleep in the car. what can i do to make her go to sleep by herself?

Hi,

Your daughter is associating sleep with the breast or car and you need to teach her to sleep independently if you want things to change. Try our settling techniques on <a href="http://www.huggies.com/au/pregnancy_parenting/yourbabysleep/">Your Baby’s Sleep</a> page. The breast feeding isn’t the problem, it’s making sure you take her off the breast before she falls asleep and settle her awake into her cot. If falling asleep in the car, you need to wake her slightly before transferring her into her cot so she can see where she is.

Good luck, Cheers Maree
