Bottle sleeper... Please help!

Post by Kirsten on Tue 3 Feb 2015 - 0:11

Any advice?
My now 2 month old seems to only fall asleep on a bottle.
Obviously this isn't good for many reasons.
I have tried
a dummy
Leaving him to moan
Holding him
I put a bottle in his mouth and 2 seconds he is out!
He only does this during the night.
Hubby just wants to give him panado, which I refuse.

Please help

Why is it bad? If it helps him to fall asleep I would not worry to much but just take the bottle away once he is asleep?

AC - I think Kirsten is concerned that it will become a habit and that he won't be able to easily fall asleep without it, which in the long run can be challenging.

Kirsten, I don't have any constructive advice, but goodluck.

I understand but what are the difference between giving him the dummy or to let him fall asleep with the bottle?

Totally agree with you K for not giving the panado
