I've doubled my hours for the summer and now DS is waking 2 or 3x a night. He was sleeping 7 to 9 hours straight, waking for a feeding, then back to sleep for a total of 12 or 13 hours in his crib. It was wonderful! I understand this change could be from developmental changes, he is trying to crawl and walk, or it could be teething. I just read though, that it could be that he is trying to find extra time with me since I'm not home as much. I try letting my husband settle DS, but he only settles with nursing. I've tried patting his back and shooshing him, but he gets very angry and wants fed. I'm really thinking it's time to ween his night feedings since he just turned 8 months. I had thought about it before, but I honestly enjoyed it, when it was just once a night. Also I feel he is an over sensitive baby and wasn't ready before and he's in the 20th percentile, so I didn't want him struggling to gain weight. He dropped to 8th percentile at 4 months and I want him to stay healthy! Is there too much going on to ween now? Should I wait a few weeks until he's used to my work schedule or wait until he's walking? What is a good rule of thumb to know when he's ready? I kind of feel selfish for wanting my sleep, but I have fibromyalgia and have been a real trooper thus far and I know he will get better sleep too. I thought I would let him ween himself, but stuff I'm reading says I'm harming his sleep health and should have weened 2 months ago. Confused and sad, as I don't want to do the wrong thing. I feel guilty not feeding him because he just wants his mommy and what better way to soothe? I wish I didn't have to work, then I wouldn't feel so guilty! He's such a sweet, happy baby, so I know I'm doing something right.
