Hi All!<br>
I don't post here often, but I do read everything and just love what you all have to say!<br>
I have a 2 yr old who has only slept a 5 hr stretch a handfull of times in her little life. We co-sleep and nurse on demand pretty much. The demand is getting more and more and I am trying to hang on and be patient.<br><br>
She is getting her 2 yr molars and I know she is hurting-she has always been a horrible teether and I suspect this is part of her problem at night (she wakes at least every 2 hrs).<br>
I am willing to stick this out but I need to know that things will improve after these teeth come in! I know it could be months more until they are all in and I am tired, tired, tired! My DH sleeps in another room so I can get the best chance of sleep possible with her and I miss him-I look at my bed longingly wishing for just a few hrs uninterrupted sleep.<br><br>
Anyway-my dd is very spirited and I have no ability to let her cry so nightweaning is not really an option for me right now.<br><br>
Anyone see improvement on it's own when 2 yr molars came in?<br><br>
Thanks!

2 year molars are awful! Mine got them all at once, pure h*ll for a week+. Our friend is getting them slowly one at a time and has been miserable and screaming for a long time now.<br><br>
For us, I just held him close during the days (lots & lots of fresh air), snuggled at night and then it was over. He is now sleeping 11 hours at night w/only a couple of quasi wakeups just to reach over and make sure I'm there.<br><br>
This from the kid who woke up every half hour for months and months and months. His body just wasn't ready. And, now it is. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/carrot.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="carrot"> So, started around 23 mos.<br><br><br>
So, there is HOPE!!!!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/carrot.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="carrot">

Sorry, my ds is 2 1/2 and his 3rd molar is coming in now...one more to go. I'm hoping for the same thing!!! No advice, but we're in the same boat. I think he's slept a 5 hour stretch....maybe twice!!
