I am super frustrated trying to figure out if we can lessen my 15 mo dd's need to nurse down to sleep. We're a dedicated cosleeping family and probably will be for quite some time as she sleeps much more securely with us still. My little peanut is also a milkaholic and we plan to practice CLW when that time comes.
We've tried the No Cry Sleep Solution method of pulling the boob out and trying to soothe but it's just hysterical screaming and the boob is the only thing that calms her down (we're on week three of this and no dice). But seriously, it's killing me. DH is fustrated because he can't get her to sleep and stay asleep on his own... she won't cuddle down in bed with him or allow him to put her down in the bed after walking her to sleep. CIO is not an option we are willing to explore but we are all very frustrated.
I don't know if she's just not ready or if I'm just letting everyone get to me.
What worked for you? Will she ever sleep with out the boob and can it be painless (relatively)? Any thoughts are appreciated.
