Hey there....I am returning to work in November and I work shiftwork so there are going to be times when I have to work overnight. I co-sleep and my DD nurses to sleep most of the time and I am getting anxious about what will happen when she wakes up in the night and I am not there (it will be my mom) and how can my mom get her back to sleep. Right now she wakes up about 2-3 times in the night and generally I nurse her back to sleep (sometimes she just rolls around and eventually falls back on her own). Anyone have to deal with this? Will she accept rocking or something else from my mom because it isn't me?
Second thing is that when she has to have naps at daycare (my friend's home), the same problem arises because she nurses to sleep for naps too. My friend has told me I should probably start some sleep training now so it isn't hard for her to nap at her house...but I don't like the idea of sleep training and would NEVER do CIO.
I guess my main question is, for those of you who nurse your children to sleep...what happens when you aren't there and they need to sleep?
