Feeding to sleep

Hi,
My little girl (3weeks) seems to have stopped falling asleep at the breast entirely. Although I know in the long run it would be good for her not to always need a feed for sleep, I feel like it was quite a sudden and early change. Is there a reason for this?

At 3 weeks nothing is likely to be perminant. She may well change back to how she was in a few days/weeks. Or change to something entirely different.

Having methods to sooth to sleep off the breast is no bad thing.
Rocking
Funny
Cosleeping
Bouncing in bouncy chair

If lying stationionary in a cot/basket, you might want to try swaddling.

Thanks! She sleeps well in her sling or out on a walk and settles at night so I guess in that respect we're lucky- I hope she recovers the ability though - it is much easier when you're knackered!
