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?

That’s how my son was! It’s totally fine and now he is two and sleeps on his own in his big boy bed!

I was like that right at the beginning but he was better at sleeping at night. Naps have always been an issue. He knows as soon as he put down and cries and then we have to start the process all over again. Lately he’s been waking up more at night too. In the first month/month and a half or so I had to supplement and he was fine with any bottle. Now he won’t take any bottle only wants breast & will only take mam pacifiers 🤦🏽‍♀️😩 I never knew they could just reject things they started on and get so picky lol

My son uses me as a pacifier, he stopped taking his bottle and pacifiers at around 2 months. As soon as I try to pull away gently he reaches for me and looks for my boob. I tried ti teach him to nap on his crib but he always wakes up as soon as I try to place him down. I tried the nest sleep sack and didn’t work. I miss my bed only being for me and my husband😭🤣

3-4 months old is a hugeeee sleep regression... it was absolute hell for us too as we’ve also been breastfeeding and bedsharing since birth. He didn’t sleep more than 30-45 minutes at a time and was attached to the boob all night long. I was exhausted, emotional, and just completely over it for 3 long weeks, and then all of a sudden his sleep went completely back to normal doing 4 hour stretches again. I thought he was teething like crazy, but didn’t get any teeth until 8 months (got 6 in one week 😶). It’s such a rough couple weeks, and it feels like it’s never going to end sometimes, but it does I promise. He’s going through another rough patch now at almost 1, which I’ve been told is also a normal sleep regression, and is cutting another 8 teeth so hopefully we’ll be up to 16 teeth and sleeping through the night soon 😂🤞🏻 Hugs and solidarity from one tired mama to another 🤗❤️
