Now is fine: To develop good sleep patterns. Feed/ nurse/rock till baby is drowsy, but put her in her own bed without a pacifier after you wipe out the last bit of feed with a soft cloth. That way, when baby is 5-6 months old, she will not develop cavities as her teeth erupt and when she night wakes briefly or cries out in light sleep, she will settle herself back down and not become a "trained night feeder.".
