Depends on age/posit: In the first 6m the neck is so short the baby must hold the head up & back to drop the jaw & mouth breathe. This is not a natural position so babies seldom sleep well.The growth of the neck by about 2-3 cm over that time allows the head to be neutral with the jaw open. In early infancy the nose must be clear to breathe without a struggle. ...Read more
No: Not necessarily. While your milk will naturally decrease, and your baby will find nutrition in other places, he/she may continue to suckle because of the comfort and closeness to you during the nursing process.

2 y/o twins are very fussy, "fight" during feeding&sleeping, get angry when hears "no", my 8 m/o baby can be "spoiled" while playing/watching them?
