I'm going batty. The first two months, we were MAJORLY struggling with getting DS to sleep. About a month in, we decided that co-sleeping would help and it did, but he was still not getting to sleep (for the night) until 2 or 3 AM and then still waking every 2-3 hours. Around Thanksgiving, he decided 11-12 would be a better bedtime (YAY!).
I have a love/hate relationship with co-sleeping. I'm not very comfortable (physically) so I feel like I need a break every now and then and I don't get it. I also feel like I've been soothing and comforting DS all day and I need more of a break at night that I'm not getting (ultimately, I'm the sole caretaker for 19 hours a day- the other 5, I share the responsibility with DH... sort of).
DS won't sleep without me- at least, not for very long. He might fall asleep with DH or someone else, but he won't stay that way for more than 15-30 minutes. He won't stay asleep in his crib or PnP or rocker. A VERY few times, he's stayed asleep an hour in his crib or our bed after I've gotten up (I'll just fold laundry in our room so I don't have to disturb him, but I can still get work done) I feel burned out. DH has "tried" to get DS to sleep but gives up rather easily. He says that DS "just wants the boob" which is 100% true! DS wants to fall asleep with a boob in his mouth and keep it there the whole time he sleeps. And my boor boobs need a break. We are moving in 2 weeks and DH wants us to start trying to get DS to sleep in his own room. And I think I need DS to sleep on his own at least part of the night. Or naps... or just something to give me a break. What can DH do to help DS fall asleep and stay asleep?
