im slowly starting to lose my mind with this sleep deprivation. i think im going to put on my bgp and start pumping and giving him a bottle before bed. he was doing 6-7 hour stretches at night but is back down to 4 or 5. which still isnt awful, but the kicker is that after he does his 'long' stretch, i will be lucky to get 2 hour stretches for the rest of the night. since i typically cant go to bed until 2 hours after he goes down im not able to take advantage of his long stretches. so yeah, im exhausted.
dh is changing his shift at work in january and i am going to be getting a waitress/bartending job at nights so either way i need to get colby used to not nursing to sleep.
have any of you other ebf-ers done this? was it successful? im grasping at straws here, but he is close to 13 pounds and nurses plenty during the day so i at least need to try.
