Hi ladies, I need some tips please. My 4.5 month baby will only fall asleep if he's breastfeeding. I try to take him off the breast once his sucking movements slow down but he fusses and won't calm down unless I put him on the breast again. I have to put him in his crib only after he's fallen into a deep sleep. I have no complaints about his sleep patterns, he sleeps for 8 hours straight during the night and takes a couple of naps during the day. But the problem is I don't know how else to put him to bed other than nursing. I've tried every type of pacifier and also putting him to bed and letting him cry it out but it isn't working. Any ideas???
