I have a 2.5 year old girl and a 6 month old baby boy. We are cosleeping with our little guy. I lie down with him in our bed and nurse him until he falls asleep. I then have a few hrs to catch up on laundry/emails/cleaning until I go to bed around 10 pm. He is then pretty much nursing hourly. I'm exhausted. I am working 2-3 days a week outside the home. I feel like I am falling apart and I don't know what to do. I am not comfortable letting him cry. This arrangement is not working so well for me though. During the day, I either lie down with him until he is asleep, or he naps in the ergo. I don't know what other cosleeping parents do and don't know anyone in the area who cosleeps who I can talk to. I feel so cranky and awful. I feel like a disaster all day long and feel like a danger on the roads.
He has not started solids yet, I was waiting until he could sit up on his own. He is starting to crawl a bit this week and is drooling/likely teething. Perhaps these things are contributing to his wakefulness but I am not sure. He has been nursing about 4 times per night since birth. (I nurse him on demand during the day too).
Thanks very much-
