Last night he nursed to sleep as usual & was awake crying in less than 2 hours. He would nurse then either pop off & cry or fall asleep lightly but wake & cry shortly after. I could only allow this for awhile because his teeth were pressing on my boob more than usual & every time he stopped nursing they were scraping my nipple HARD as he unlatched. I ended up refusing to nurse for 5 hours & we both got some sleep.
Also, he recently started sobbing when I hand him to his daddy. Only mommy will do apparently (though he was just fine this am with the morning routine & daycare drop that daddy always does).
I almost lost it last night. Not in a physically hurt him kind of way, but I was getting to a point where I could barely respond, I couldn't react to his crying. He wouldn't accept comfort of any kind, just kept rolling over, squirming, crawling around, flinging arms & legs... All while sobbing on & off. That started before I stopped nursing for the record.
I know there is the 13 month sleep regression, but is it this bad with constant crying also during the day only at home? Has 8 teeth &I don't see any signs of new ones. No recent diet changes.
So I'm thinking of night weaning. Is that a bad idea? Or even just a 5 hour no nursing stretch. I will probably look into counseling also. I do think I need it.
Would love to hear from other mamas.
