My worst habit is definitely comfort nursing or nursing him to sleep. I know it's just making things harder for me later, but I just can't stop doing it!
I agree with all PP. It's hard not to just nurse and nap when it makes life easier for all involved.

Mio marito per sempre...Married 2009. DD born 2010. TTC#2 since 4/13.
ACR:Going to him as soon as I hear a peep at night. I really should give him a minute or two to see if he can fall back asleep on his own.
I do this as well, I know I should just give her a minute to see if she'll fall back to sleep.
I also am bad about getting up and bringing her to bed with me when she wakes up at 4 AM. I know that it's better for her to learn to sleep longer on her own in the morning, but if I bring her in bed with me I guaranteed an extra 1.5 hours of sleep!
lilmissmuffin12:i do it too and it makes everything a lot less stressful right now. its also the only thing ive found so far that works to get her to sleep.
I wake up every one and a half or two hours to check if my little pumpkin is still breathing. I cannot stop it. It is even worse now that we got her the crib.
Although the crib is just next to the bed and she sleeps there without any complain from the first night, I get up to take her back to the bed with me once or twice a night to nurs her. She goes to sleep right away but I still keep her a little bit there so I can watch her breathing.
Nurse him to sleep & bed sharing. I know I shouldn't but it makes my life easier specially since am sleep deprived lol
Harms80: Now, my worst habit is saying "Just a minute" 50000000 times a day. Now, I hear him say it whenever I ask him to do stuff. Turnabout sucks.
Our's is "I can't right now. I'm busy" It has become our 3 year-old's favorite phrase!
I honestly have to ask...... What's wrong with nursing to sleep? I also saw somebody post "swaddling" as a bad habit... what? How?
Anyway, my worst habit is definitely bringing him back to bed with me in the middle of the night.

I do this too. ?I'm not sure how I would even go about stopping. ?
Nursing to sleep is natural. I did this with my first too until she was 6 months (then I stopped nursing). Then I fed her a bottle before bed most of the time. No bad habits were created. She is 3 now and a great sleeper -- no bad habits.
I def nurse my son to sleep now at night. Not for naps though -- I give him a paci. Some may think a paci is a bad habit, but my daughter never took one and now that my son does, I find it very helpful.
Do what works.

oh good, I am not the only one who comfort/sleep nurses. We are trying to break the habit...its horrible to hear her cry but my boobs have reached the end of their endurance and breast feeding has become so painful now. How do you balance the crying without nursing?
(we are trying to break the habit because when dad has the kiddo and she gets upset he has no boobs-and she doesn't like binkies)
