My exclusively breast fed 4 month old baby girl has become dependent on nursing to fall asleep. She has never accepted a pacifier of any of the 4 kinds I've tried. I try to lay her down when she is half drowsy as I have read through my searches. She buries her head on her mattress looking for my breast until she realizes I'm not there. Then she starts crying. I leave her for five minutes and she does not stop. I give in and nurse her to sleep. Its irritating at times to be a human pacifier. Any suggestions?
