Have been trying to de latch her which works when I'm awake enough but by 2 in the morning it falls by the wayside - altho will try to be on that more.
I think basically I need some reassurance from others who have been there and done that. I really worry about her being sleep deprived as she seems so tired in the daytime.
I can feel that I am really getting to end of my physical and emotional reserves and altho DH is up for supporting, she is incredibly attached to me (a good thing I know) and struggles to go more than an hour without me, so I get very little break. She is incredibly quick to escalate to extreme upsetness and so trying other ways of calming her is very difficult as it feels she gets so quickly to a point of no return.
Any advice or support from others with babies like that who have seen the other end of the tunnel really appreciated.
I feel really strongly that one of my main roles as a parent to her specifically is to teach her how to relax and wind down but feel am failing miserably as the only way at the moment I can calm her is with the breast - which means it's only me that can do it. HAve delayed going back to work as long as I can, but not sure if can manage it much more after she's a year and I worry that she'll still need me so much and the thought of leaving her in day care is heartbreaking
Ahhh - will stop as feel could go on and on, so please any help!
