Hi. I feel like my life is literally impossible sometimes - like I am amazed that my body still functions. About half the time, I get ZERO sleep. The other half, it's maybe two hours, broken up into little bits.
My 9 month old daughter ONLY sleeps when nursing.
We have been cosleeping from birth. I never got the hang of sleeping while she was latched on. My husband does not sleep with us because he sleepwalks and it's dangerous to have him around her at night - we tried.
About 3 months ago when it became unbearable I decided to try moving her ino her own bed (a floor-bed frame with a crib mattress in a baby-proof room). I thought I would begin by nursing her to sleep on her bed, then sleeping beside her, and then I would gradually move further away and eventually out of the room.
Well, now we are just cosleeping but on a tiny tiny mattress.
I read the no cry sleep solution but I have no energy for all of that. she only naps in a sling while i am walking and does not sleep at night unless she is nursing. I literally never get to lie down at all. Zero breaks ever.
I hate this. What can I do? I amamazed sometimes that I am still alive, this just seems crazy.
