my only daughter is 5.5 months and my partner, her dad, and I all share a king size bed... so space is not the issue. cosleeping isnt really the issue either, as i have grown fond of cuddling with her at night. the problem i am having now is that she litterally does not sleep with out my nipple in her mouth, we have been side nursing since she was a newborn. and she has never taken a pacifier. Also she seems to be doing the majority of her eating at night. this poses a few problems: she pees though diapers, our sheets are constantly wet (which dh is NOT happy about) and this has developed into a horrible sleep habits for me, I used to be able to sleep through the feedings, now i cant and then my mind starts racing and i cant get back to sleep. Dont get me wrong I dont mind comfort nursing at night, but its hard as she is doing the majority of her eating at night. She hasn't had any solids yet, only breast milk, and I was planning on waiting as long as possible, but maybe that would help her not to be so hungry at night? Also putting her bed, is becoming challeging as I picked up a few nights, am a nurse, and noone else can put her to sleep but me because the only way she has ever gone to sleep at night is side nursing. eventually i would like her to be comfortable in her own bed/crib but don't really know how to transition it. I apologize for the rambling and varied issues, am a new mom, can you tell?
