Bedsharing=nursing all night?

My 3/mo daughter is 100% breastfed and my husband and I both agreed to bedsharing with her. It’s been super awesome, my anxiety is much better knowing she’s okay through the night. We have been bedsharing for about 1.5months now and recently she’s been ATTACHED to me All Night Long! It’s gotten to the point of her not letting me leave her alone for her naps. I’m wondering if other bedsharing moms have experienced this behavior?

My little one was the same until 4 months and then the 4 month sleep regression hit and he wanted to sleep alone. Before 4 months I was attached every night and baby wore for day naps. I miss those days now. Just go with your instinct :) you know best xx

We coslept with my oldest and now with my youngest and honestly they sleep better with me. Don’t worry it’s normal. They usually go through a big growth spurt around then and nurse constantly. Go with it. Nursing is all about supply and demand. Eventually it will calm down and baby will start sleeping longer stretches. In the mean time drink plenty and try to take it easy. That’s a lot on your body too helping that little human grow.

My son is in a “next to me” and it’s been great. I feed him then slide him back in his bed. I used to have to hold his hand now and then & he’d sleep longer. Now he often wakes & just lies staring at me until I wake

Been bed sharing since 6 weeks she is now 10 months. The all night thing comes and goes with different stages. So don't worry I would say more often than not it is not an issue. Usually unless mine is teething she won't do that.

I plan on co-sleeping myself but I think it's better to get one of those cribs or bassinets that attach to the bed. That way the baby is right there but still in it's own space, no risk of rolling on baby or baby rolling off the bed. I think it's perfectly fine but there needs to be separation training somewhere, some time soon

Awe 😩 I remember when I was a “textbook mom” too! We’ve a been there. The: - Miss safety first - I would never - super women type mom We had it all figured out before she was born... she was going to sleep by herself. of course I was going to have ALL THIS SUPPORT FROm FAMILY (which never happened, where did everyone go??🤷🏻‍♀️) My baby was going to be so sleepy all the time... I would have so much time to take care of things around the house, I might even become board. NOT!

The key word here is "plan." I planned the same. Even got the pack and play (with bassinet attachment) set up next to my bed a month before my due date to train my cat to stay out of it. Then my son was born. He would not sleep unless in physical contact with my husband or I for the first few weeks. Once we gave it up and put him in our bed, he immediately started sleeping through the night with only a few "dream feedings." Now, after that first few weeks I was able to get him to start taking naps while swaddled in his crib... But he's still with us at night so he sleeps through the night.
