DD is 13 months. She nurses down to sleep for bed and nap and wakes up once at night to nurse (like hungry nurse). I don't mind her actually nursing down much of the time - if she's tired enough it only takes 10-20 minutes before I can escape.
But at night, about 30-60 minutes after I put her down, she wakes up and starts crying for me because she wants to nurse back down, and that is the one where it may take another 10-20 minutes, or it could take up to an hour - and if I don't get to her quickly, she might just wake up and take the past 30-60 minutes as a nap. This happens in about half of her naps too - 15-30 minutes in she wakes up screaming to nurse back down, and probably half of the time she does that I end up in there the rest of her nap stuck to her or she just totally wakes up.
Like I said, I don't mind her waking up in the middle of the night when I'm in the bed sleeping with her, it's the waking up after initially going down, and sometimes it happens 2 or 3 times! I just want her to learn how to go back to sleep on her own without thinking BOOB, MUST HAVE BOOB, NEED BOOB NOW! Sometimes my mom has gone in there and laid down with her and a couple times she was fine falling back to sleep because she knows my mom doesn't have the goods. But with me I can't just hold her or sit there with her, she wants my boobs and that's that. Plus if she could learn to go down without nursing, it would make leaving her with someone else a LOT easier (I've had *two* nights out since she was born).
I'm going crazy. I really am. Nuts. PLEASE HELP ME!!
