My 5 month old daughter is exclusively breastfeed and will not go to bed much earlier than 10pm and more often around 11.30pm every night. Nursing her to sleep seems to be the only way I can get her to sleep. Is it ok to nurse her to sleep every night? Is it ok that there is such a long period with her awake? (Basically from 6-11.30pm give or take she can be awake)
She has 3 two hour sleeps during the day and sometimes a one hour sleep around 7pm. After the 11.30pm feed she often sleeps until 5.30am. She settles herself to sleep throughout the day so it is only the 11.30pm feed that I nurse her to sleep.
Naturally, I just want what is best for her - and don't want to create a situation that we have problems rectifying.
