I am not sure if this post is best suited for this forum or the nightime parenting forum, but here it goes...
I have a 10 month old who has decided she wants to comfort nurse off and on all night long. She goes to bed in her crib in my room and then comes into bed with me when I go to bed...then the frenzy begins. Lately, it is very typical of her to be up every hour wanting the breast. She does take a pacifier and will sometimes take this as a substitute, but other times throws a royal fit. Additionally, I am partly to blame because when she wakes and starts trying to crawl around, I stick the boob in her mouth as an attempt to get her back to sleep and not fully wake up. I don't believe she is hungry and it isn't clear how much milk she is actually getting.
anyway, I am beyond tired and this is not working well for me. I feel at a total loss and don't know what to do, but I am a walking zombie. I can't sleep during the day when she does (she is the queen of 30-40 minute naps and by the time my body is able to start winding down, she is waking up. It is somewhat helpful if I go to bed around 8, but I am working from home and the only time I have to do this is after the girls are asleep.
I am at he point of considering weaning simply b/c I am so tired, but I am sure that would be pretty hellish n its own since DD is such a boob baby.
Anyone have any advice?
