I'm feeling despirate. My daughter is 15 months old, and she's been in the bed with us since she was 4 months. It's been a bumpy ride, but, for the most part, we've all had a positive experience with bedsharing. Lately, however, I feel that the dynamic has somehow changed. Several times a week, for several weeks now, she wakes up and stays up...for 3-4 hours. I realize she's getting her molars, learning language skills, etc., but I can't help but feel that I'm doing something wrong - that in trying to do what's best for her, I'm actually hurting her. In no way, shape, or form do I want to "baby train," but am I denying her sleep by having her in the bed with us? I'm so confused and feel a little defeated right now.
I guess I'm asking for your experiences with similar situations you and your baby(ies) have gone through. Thanks for your support.
