I posted a couple of weeks ago asking about bed sharing with my little one.. And things are still not getting better..
Here is a refresher...
LO is 7 months. We have been bed sharing exclusively since about 4.5 months. Before this she would sleep 4-7 hours in her PNP. She then started waking up several times a night, so I started just leaving her bed with us. I love bed sharing and it was working out great until a month or so ago... Now all she wants is to be attached to me all night long... I'm not getting any sleep!
I was asked before if she was teething. She cut through her first two bottom teeth last week. Starting last week, we have started to try and transition her over to her crib.. The first night she lasted an hour, 2nd 3 hours (!!) 3rd an hour and the last few she lasts minutes.. I can soothe her back to sleep and she will be right back up in a few minutes and this cycle continues. After 6 or 7 tries,I give up and bring her to bed with us.. Then she latches on and sleeps. If I pull her off or she pulls off she cries until I let her latch back on. This goes on all night..
Very rarely she will take a pacifier ( I have tried several kinds). She will not take a bottle but will take a sippy cup. DH has tried to get her down that way without me nursing her and that doesn't work either.. I am the onely one who can put her to bed.
She is on solids twice a day as well. I have also started being aware and making sure to nurse her every 2-3 hours during the day. So I know she is not starving at night.. Once or twice she will actually eat the rest of the time it is just comfort nursing.
I don't know what else to do. The issue is not her going to sleep in her crib.. She just wakes up wanting to nurse. Any thoughts? Advice?
Thanks so much ladies!! I need sleep! Lol!
