He doesn't sleep well at night (neither do I) that's for sure, and it's difficult to get him down for naps during the day. He just seems so cranky and miserable but he doesn't really get deep restful sleep. I'm not sure why. We cosleep and he wakes up so frequently. The only thing that gets him to sleep is nursing.

Someone suggested night weaning...his waking seems more intense since finding out I'm pregnant again. I just wish there was a method or tactic of helping him sleep more? I'm going to start giving him either goats milk or coconut milk before bed to help him sleep because maybe I'm not making enough milk?

I need to do something and would appreciate any advice...as I just want my happy baby back greensad.gif

Is he eating any foods besides breast milk?  Perhaps his iron is low and that is contributing to the fatigue.  EBF babies can have lower iron as they get closer to 1 year.
