I need to change our sleeping arrangements. E is still nursing incessantly at night. He does pull off here and there but once the sleep cycle ends, he's using me as a pacifier to get back to sleep. Basically, he's nursing every 45-1 hour all night long but really only taking a full feed sometime between 2-4 am. It's been 7.5 months of no sleep. I couldn't bring myself to make a change in the past but I think I need to do it now. Thing is, I'm scared to put him in a crib in his own room just down the hall. He would be about 15 feet from our bedroom but I'm having a hard time with it. He would definitely need his own room as he wakes if I so much as move my tingling arms or aching hips (ouch!) at night. I get stuck in one position for hours at a time at night and it's not comfortable at all. Crib in our room won't work because he wakes to any bit of noise (which my DH makes EVERY.SINGLE.TIME he comes to bed no matter how much I beg him to be quiet!), even with the white noise machine on. Anyway, I think I may be neurotic. I think about a house fire happening and whether or not I could save him. What happens if a lamp in his room sets on fire. Sure, the alarm would sound, but could I save him? Do any of you guys think like this or do I need therapy?
Anyway, any tips for getting him into his own crib that does not involve hysterically crying-it-out?
