Why won't you sleep

Am I the only one here breastfeeding on demand? Would a schedule help my daughter with sleeping better? And perhaps be less clingy during the day?

It sounds like many of you follow schedules as well as set bedtimes. My baby is usually asleep on me or in a sling, until I go up to bed (she sleeps with me). If I try to put her down in the bassinet or my bed, she wakes up. I think she needs to feel me or smell me to sleep. All my kids were this way.

How does a 1 month old, or even a two month old play?

Sometimes he sleeps through his 4 am feeding. The better he sleeps during the day- the better he sleeps at night. I am reading the book Healthy Sleep Habits , Happy Child and while I disagree with many of their ideas-it has taught me a bunch of useful things.
A closed mind is a wonderful thing to lose.
