His sleeping got much much much worse at 4 mo (he used to sleep from 7:30pm until anywhere from 2 to 5am straight). It got so bad he was waking every hour or half hour sometimes.
We decided to try bedsharing last week (he's 5.5mo now) and he went from only needing to nurse 2 to 3 times a night and falling asleep on his own, simply next to me w/ his pacifier in his mouth. Now...he has to be on my breast or he won't go to sleep and he's waking anywhere from every hour to every 1/2 hour needing my breast again. I don't think he actually really "nursed" all night. Just suckled to sleep.
this would be fine if I was able to sleep, but I'm sleeping worse now than when he was 1 foot from our bed and his "needs" to get back to sleep seem to be higher.
Does bedsharing get any easier w/ time? I'm not willing to give up on it yet (not sure I have an alternative) but I pray that it does get easier and he'll eventually stop waking up so much or need so much from me to sleep when previously he did it on his own....
