I've read almost everywhere that nursing to sleep is a no-no. I breastfeed for amost 40mins (and my milk supply is pretty well established.. with heavy letdown. Baby has gained a pound from his birthweight, and has 6-8 wet diapers a day), burp him, then he hiccups for a bit, sometimes spits, settles down sometimes but sometimes becomes fuzzy, then i change his diaper, and try to rock him to sleep. But then he roots again and cries frantically and as soon as i latch him back on he sucks like he's been starved for hours. Seems like nursing him to sleep is all that works. Last night he fed on and off from 10pm to 3 am. We tried to let him cry himself to sleep but after 20 mins of rooting while crying i picked him up, he fed for a few minutes then he was knocked out. Can anyone please help? I am terrified, clueless, confused.
