So my 11 month old has been going to bed fairly early, and too early for me to join him. He wakes up constantly looking for me until I finally go to bed. I have been thinking about just keeping him up until I go to bed, but I have always heard that between 6 and 7pm is the healthiest bedtime for kids...I was wondering what other people's experiences are. This could be the solution to our problem, but before I start keeping him up later I don't want to mess up his sleep...
Thanks, that does help- at least I am not alone in this :)  I feel ike the only solution for is is acceptance... I can try putting the A/C in his room, since it has been pretty hot at night.  I am almost certain he jsut wants to be with me, because a good cuddle with the boob is what soothes him, and he wants top just hang out there....forever.  He usually stops waking up when I go to bed with him. We are going to try to all sleep in bed as a family, unti now it has been...
I recently posted about trying to night wean my 11 month old, and I decided that I'm not ready. The situation is this: I put him down in his crib at 6pm, and he usually goes pretty well. He wakes up at least every hour after that until I go to bed, at 8:30 or 9. At that point he comes to bed with me and I don't know how often he wakes. When I go to him I try shush and pat, but he just wants boob, which I give him, then he goes right back to sleep. He doesn't even nurse...
How many times does he nurse at night? My son is 11 months and I can't see him giving up night nursing any time soon. He is up5 times/night    
Thanks you  for mentioning the fact that night weaning may not mean sleeping through the night.... I do know that he wakes for reasons other than nursing, but it ultimately helps him fall asleep. I have to say that I am pretty insecure when it comes to this subject since I get so much criticism about my boy not sleeping through. He is very sensitive and cry it out doesn't seem right for him. I really don't mind nursing at night, I just don't know what is best for my son....
Thanks, I will look into this!
He was born aug 8. Husband is the issue here, too. We sleep in separate beds since he can't sleep with baby in the bed
I wonder what about a 10 month old...He definitely looks for milk and doesn't sleep until he gets a good amount each time he wakes it- every 2 hours!
Just trying to get some insight...My son had never truly slept through the night. It's normal for him to wake every 2-3 hours, sometimes 1-2. In my heart I don't mind, and I do enjoy nursing at night, but My husband and I have been sleeping in separate beds, because we can't all fit comfortably in the same bed. I keep going back and forth about night weaning... We plan to get pregnant again soon, so I don't think I would do well with situation when that...
Not sure if I'm even pregnant. I haven't have a period since my 9 month old son was born. I took a test a couple days ago which gave me a line so faint I had to rip out the strip and look next to the light to see it. the net day it was darker. I took 2 more tests and they both read negative. So false positive? I have been having a lot of wacky dreams, some of which I am pregnant, and my nips are sore, but maybe because my son is biting them... So we'll see! I will try to...
