This is my first proper post so I'm sorry if this is something that has already been covered many times. My 10 month old DS has been having his sleep regression for the past 2 months and in that time has been very difficult to get to sleep by breastfeeding. He always used to fall asleep peacefully and quietly, but for that past month or two he's been jumping, squirming, rolling and basically NOT going peacefully to sleep while breastfeeding!!
When I unlatch him, or he unlatches himself, he starts to relax but then all of a sudden freaks out because he doesn't have a mouth full of boob, so I feed him again. Then he squirms again...unlatches...relaxes....freaks out...nurses...squirms etc etc repeat repeat until he finally zones out on the boob. The only way I can get him to fall asleep is to silmutaneously rock him while I'm nursing him too...I feel like this is getting slightly ridiculous
Nothing else has changed, we have a good daily and bedtime routine...has he just outgrown nursing to sleep? Did anyone else's LOs do this? He naps and starts out the night in his cot but we co-sleep after my bed time. He also doesn't join sleep cycles so is awake every 45mins day and night...but I won't get started on that.
I feel like I should just give up on him falling to sleep while nursing and get him used to being rocked etc but also feel like there's some crazy part of me that can't just let nursing to sleep go. It doesn't help that he seems to not be able to get all the way to sleep without it and cries (screams) if I just try to rock him. I fed his older sister to sleep til 15months and feel like he's still so little.
Sorry if this is a rambling post...exhausted today! Thanks to anyone who relplies
