Hi there! I'm a long time lurker of this board, first time poster (I think). Before having DS, I knew very very little about AP. Without realizing it, a lot of what I do for/with him is AP. It just happens to be what feels to be right for us.
One thing that I do (not sure if it's part of AP) which I get a lot of slack for, is I nurse LO to sleep. At first it was that he had a difficult time staying awake during feedings when he was so little, then it became the easiest way for me to help him to sleep, now it's an activity I really enjoy. I know that I'm building a bad habit and I risk LO needing to nurse to sleep all the time with me (DH and other family members can get him to sleep by rocking). I'm just not sure if it's something we should work at stopping and what's the best approach would be.
Will you talk to me about your experience with nursing LO to sleep? Did it become a problem later on? How did you break this habit? TIA!
