At present he is waking every 2 hours. I am a stay at home mom so I know he is getting a good amount of snuggles during the day. I have tried to offer other methods of soothing at night in hopes of breaking his reliance on the boob to sleep but that doesn't work because if he doesn't get what he wants (the boob) he starts to cry and then escalates to screaming.
I am ok with continuing to feed him at night (since if I do offer the boob right away he will most often go back to sleep again in 5 mins or less...) IF he could just wake a lot less frequently.
I am feeling like a hostage since most of the gentle suggestions for night weaning will probably result in him screaming until he gets the boob and I don't really want to make him cry... I just want to tell him to sleep! (which by the way I did tonight as I put on his jammies... Might have begged a little actually.)
Is there anything that worked for you all? Any thoughts on my hostage crisis? Or am I just screwed until he decides to sleep longer?
