I need help. DS turned 1 on May 15th and we cosleep. He nurses to sleep everynight. Often b/c of work DH isn't home until after DS falls asleep. Usually DS falls asleep around 8 ish but could be anytime between 7 and 9pm. Tonight i wanted to go to Bingo at our camp with MIL. It started at 8. I left at 7:45 after nursing ds, but he didn't fall asleep. He was sitting at the table having some gold fish with daddy when I left. I pumped him a small bottle which he wouldn't take. He has only had a handful of EBM bottles in his life, and those were months ago.
So I took the walki talki and DH ended up using it an hour later because he tried everything and DS cried non stop and was now hyperventilating. So I came back to our camper and nursed him to sleep and went back to bingo to play what was left, when ds was sleeping.
I just started as a consultant with Usborne and if I do some shows on weeknights occassionally I will need DS to go to sleep for someone else either auntie or daddy while I am not there. DH said "see I told you he needs to learn to go to sleep on his own". In other words its my fault ds is close...ummm...attached to me....Isn't that the point of ap lol?
Anyways what do you guys suggest? Do your DC nurse to sleep all the time?
Please any tips, advice is greatly appreciated!
