My daughter was sleeping from 7 until 5:30 every day and getting up one time per night to breastfeed. Then at 5 1/2 mths old she started wanting to breastfeed every 2 or less hours and it's lasted 3 weeks now. She eats regularly during the day and is eating her cereal, veggies and fruit. I tdon't think she is really hungry at night, I think she just needs to breastfeed to fall back asleep. I've tried to just comfort her when she wakes or wait to see if she falls back asleep, but she wants only to feed. She knows how to fall sleep herself, because she falls asleep by herself for naps and at bedtime. I'd appreciate any suggestions on how to break this habit.
