I hope you don't mind me adding that ..., I've decided that tonight is our night for change. After almost 2 yrs of sleeping at no longer than 90minute intervals, I'm finally physically ready to try to gently lengthen my sons sleep. He's been nursing and pretty much latched on all night for so long now that my lower back is really hurting. He's sleep seems ro be bevoming more wakeful as the months go by also. I wasn't ready emotionally until now, in fact I don't know if I will ever be. Honestly, it's the back pain that is pushing me to take this leap.
We've been reading Sally Weans from Night Nursing together for the past week. Bless my darling son who loves the book because it has pictures of a child nursing. Nursing means so much to him.
I'm filled with fear and dread because I know that this will be so difficult for my DS, but I have to try this for "me". I will aim for 6 hrs (until about 2am) but if things are very hard I will nurse in our chair at 12am and 4am. Oh my goodness... Cannot believe I'm going to try this!!!!
