    Sometimes I do sometimes I don't, just depends what mood he's in and what he needs. Plus I love cuddling him to sleep even though I know I'm probably making a rod for my back but thought I'd wait until 6 months before enforcing too much routine etc on him!

    It depends on what mood E is in. If she is grumpy, I will put her on my tummy and gently bounce her to sleep. If she is happy, I will just put her down in her crib or bouncer and she will just fall asleep on her own.

    I know I will be really upset when she is too big to lay on my tummy comfortably.

    I dont actually know how to change this I didnt cuddle her for naps anymore because she rarely has them however at night she falls asleep drinking her bottle and I don't know how to change that and get her to settle herself to sleep in her cot???

    I actually feel bad for my new LO because I was able to sit and cuddle P all day if I wanted to when she was first born which I did a lot (again I don't cafe if people thinks its bad it made us both happy and that's all that matters
    To me) but I won't be able to do that this time ad I have P to look after too! Poor bubba!

    Is it branded wrong because babies need independence?
    I'm 20 years old and I still love mummy cuddles off my mum, it makes me feel happy and loved.
    In fact at my 17/18th birthday party I fell asleep in my mum's arms because I was tired from the party/sleepover the night before :lol: Imagine an 18 year old sleeping on you! xxx

    In a way yes, coz kayden falls asleep with every feed & I then put him down to sleep so I suppose he does get cuddled to sleep. I wouldn't hesitate to give him a wee cuddle to settle him. He can also settle himself in his bed & for naps so either way he's fine.

    I do. It's the only way we can get LO to go to sleep at bedtime, otherwise she'd be up all night wanting to play!

    I do but then she is really colicky. I find that having her tummy against my chest, keeping warm is the only thing that soothes her sometimes xx

    Yep, I do. I have no idea how to start getting Jax to settle himself! In fact I am cuddling him while he naps as I type!

    Not really-I swaddle him, lie him down so he is face up with my hands behind his head and sway him left to right then half-asleep lie him in his cot and let him fall asleep himself. cuddles are for when I get him out of bed xxxx

    Ryan won't fall asleep if he's cuddled or being talked to, I have to put him in his bouncy chair and ignore him before he drifts off, or he fights sleep and is so grumpy.
