Hi all I co-sleep for the second half of the night, we're trying to get LO used to his crib and he goes down ok for the first 4-5 hours. After that he comes in with me because he is difficult to settle after his first feed (tbh I don't really try that hard ).
I feed him laying down on my side towards the end of the night and we often both drift off for a few more hours after his second feed around 5-6am. I have read that many mums leave the breast out and their LO latches themselves. Is this a skill learnt as they get older or am I misinterpreting - do they just pop themselves on when mum is sleeping? I have to keep helping LO to get back on when it pops out his mouth during his second feed.
My baby started helping himself probably at 7 months but he was a late roller! He could latch himself on earlier but I needed to roll him towards me and until about 3 months he did keep slipping off. X
