Confinement Nanny encouraging nursing baby for comfort
Hi mummies Have you been nursing your baby for comfort so that they can fall asleep? Whenever my nanny sees that my baby is slightly restless or can’t fall asleep after playing with her, she’ll hand baby over to me for comfort nursing. I’m on mat leave, and yes I can afford to do this but when i return to work, there is no chance for comfort nursing during the day. I’m worried it’ll turn into a habit. I’m also aware that nanny is only keen to put baby to sleep, so that she can manage other things..(can’t wait for her to leave). As such, I’m introducing pacifier instead, baby suckles well on that too. My concerns are: Will baby outgrow comfort nursing? Is it going to become a bad habit if I continue to let baby suckle for comfort and sleep? How do you put a tired baby to sleep?
