Let me start out by saying i never thought i would be the one writing this post.
I am a passionate AP mama, but these last few weeks have been HARD. DS is 9 months, I usually wear him to sleep around 9:00 each night. i lay him down once he is asleep, and he wakes up anywhere from 30 mins to 45 mins later. I used to be able to nurse him to sleep again and now he wont. He just wants to play or just tosses and turns and can't fall back asleep.
I'm starting school again in a week and I have no idea how I'm going to have time for this. I literally just have to sit in the room with him all night until i go to bed.
So many people have suggested i sleep train him or get him a crib or "teach him to fall asleep on his own," and up until now i have been really good at giving my perfect AP mama answer. But after a particularly hard night like tonight, I found myself considering sleep training-- which i know in my heart i do not want to do.
This is where you come in! Please re-convince me that co-sleeping is the best for both of us! Any glimmer of hope from mamas who have been here would be greatly appreciated as well!
