theherd replied to topic How do I keep our son in his own bed all night..

I think it's alarming too, especially when you consider the rates of c/s when compared between private, public and homebirth patients. If it's 'only done when neccessary' then WHY do these rates ...

Try giving her bigger bottles first, and make sure you're only feeding when hungry, not to calm or put to sleep. Try to settle her first rather than feed straightaway, she might just want a hug. ...
