Hi all, wasn't sure where to post this, maybe will crosspost in "the family bed"
My little guy is turning 1 tomorrow, and in his short lifespan has moved 5 times already, and we are about to move again. All within the same town, but still, lots of changes.
We co-sleep in a kingsize futon , and he wakes up 4-5 times a night to nurse.
I'm getting alot of pressure from my parents to move him to a crib, as well as CIO. they are convinced that we wake the baby up at night, which is why he won't sleep through the night.
I think that moving as many times as we have, the one constant has been the family bed, and nursing, so he relies on these to feel "at home".
\I'm exhausted, and there are nights where he'll wake every 45 mins.
Any advice on nightweaning? Or should I wait until all the moves are done? We have one more after this one, into our own house. finally!
Anyone have any good responses to pressuring grandparents?
Now dp wanting to try CIO, and I am feeling like a failure on just about all fronts...
I do feel like he needs this one constant in his life until we are in a stable home. any tips on getting grandparents to stop the judging?
