I posted this on breastfeeding but thought I'd post here as well. :-)
Up until DD was about 6 months I nursed her to sleep and then put her
down. I broke the habit around then by implementing a strict schedule
for a few weeks and slowly getting her used to falling asleep on her
own. She would sleep, the majority of the time, from 7:30-8am waking up
one time around 3am to nurse.
Fast forward to 11months (now) nighttime, and she is only going to sleep when I nurse her. I can't move her until she's been asleep for at least 15 minutes. The past 3 nights in a row she has spent most of the night in bed with DH and I and attached to my breast. She stopped using a paci around the time she stopped nursing to sleep and won't take one. She won't take a bottle either. She just wants to use me as a human pacifier.
She only has 2 teeth so it might be teething. She has just started walking more so maybe it's a milestone thing. She has also dropped one nap. Do you think one or more of these could be causing it? Do you have any advice?
H and I decided to wake her up at 7 today and try to coax her back to 2 naps to see if that helps. If she doesn't take 2 naps we're going to put her down earlier.Any other help/advice/knowledge/experience would be appreciated. Thanks ladies.
