My 21-month-old wants to nurse throughout her naps. I've done this for almost two years, and I've had it. I love nursing itself, but I've had it with the total lack of a break whatsoever. Spending multiple hours a day in uncomfortable positions while my toddler painfully nurses long after the milk is gone. The feeling of no support from DH because apparently he's just never, ever, ever going to decide to learn how to put her to sleep. It's 100% up to me, and I'm exhausted, overwhelmed, and so very resentful.
Has anybody ever taught their little one to nap independently? Yes, I own and have read all the Pantley books. For DD, the Pantley-Pull-Off just results in no nap whatsoever - she stays in this light doze-state, and each attempt to unlatch her makes her wake up a tiny bit more, until she's totally awake and nap is over. If I wait until she's deeper asleep, well, some days (like today) that just never happens - she stays in the twilight state for two hours, and I'm stuck. So I'm desperate to move past the textbooks and onto some real nitty-gritty. Did you make a change? I need the details - I need to know what I'll need to power through, is there any hope at all? Dr Sears says, "If you resent it, change it!" and I am SO THERE. Help? Anyone?
