I feel like it would be to much to follow dr jay gordons rules and maybe only nurse from say 8 to 11 and then in the morning? But not tapper off, just keep this pattern? (We Co sleep) has anyone had success with this set up? Then maybe I could comfort her another way to bed from midnight to morning (but she will be so angry
I had the same issue with my third one around 11/12 mo and my solution was to pump some bm and add some organic rice flour through that and give that around 7pm. Then nurse like regular around midnight/1pm (when I would go to bed) and it was better that way as we would sleep at least 4/5 hrs. Still this one is the one who eats the most.
I was exhausted and hated pumping and adding rice flour but it gave me a change to sleep some more and not go crazy (bad for your brain to wake up that often every single night!!!)
It was a little later than this with DS1 that I set up a little barrier between us in the bed (I can't remember what it was now). I noticed that if he accidentally rolled over and I was there he would actively seek out my breast, all while asleep. But if I wasn't in groping range he would roll back over and fall asleep. It didn't work through the whole night, but it bought me a couple of extra hours every night before he would breech the barricade and come snuggle me (and nurse, of course).
Once I got my DD to sleep with her last nuring of the night I traded places with my husband. She'd wake up and be see him then look the other way and not see me and then just snuggle back to sleep next to him. It worked out pretty well for us most of the time.
