DS is 21 months. He nurses 3 times a day (sometimes 4) and this is a decrease of about 3-4 sessions since he was 18 months old (we've cut out everything but am, pre and post nap and bedtime (with don't offer, don't refuse)--unless he's sick, then all bets are off). Since AF resumed at 18 months PP I've had increasing bouts of insomnia (it's currently almost 1am and I tried to go to bed at 9pm). Often I have night sweats/hot flashes, like I had immediately PP (I'm 33 and don't believe I am perimenopausal, AF every 28 days since it resumed).
Is this normal? How can I make it stop? (And if anyone has ideas for getting DS to sleep past 6am...LOL)
I have no plans to wean DS anytime soon altho' I am working on getting him to fall asleep for naps without nursing (just so others can put him down for a nap occasionally).
Melatonin hasn't been helping...and anything I do take needs to be safe when I nurse DS in the morning.
Help, I'm going to be a mess tomorrow, and I'm sick of being a mess...
