Quoting Thorian's Mommy:" if you cosleep, does your lo depend on you to fall asleep?? LO fights sleep so bad, he refuses to sleep ... [snip!] ... him depending on me so much. it gets so bad that he is starting to throw minnie baby tantrums... P.s he is five months old."
My LO is almost 4 months old, he sometimes depends on me to fall asleep, but other times he just crashes on his own. I know at night though he definitely will not go to sleep without my boob. But after he's asleep he's usually out for a while, if he wakes up I nurse him again and put him on his stomach in his crib and he's out for hours. Then he'll sleep in the car almost every trip no problems really and even sleep after we get home for an hour or so. All I know though is that it's not going to last forever. It's a slow process teaching them to sleep on their own.
