Ok, well we are still breastfeeding and cosleeping, which is great- EXCEPT I work 2 evenings per week (until 10pm) and baby goes to sleep usually around 8pm - Before I would come home, breastfeed her to sleep and go back to work, but i can't always do that now, and now she often wakes up 10minutes after i've gone and totally freaks out. When i cant come back my poor husband is left with an overtired, screaming baby, and he carries her around all evening to no avail (she is now over 20lbs!). Last night i came home and she was absolutely hysterical, and even i couldn't get her to relax and sleep- it took carrying her and breastfeeding while i carried her and singing for almost an hour before she finally relaxed and went to bed with me.
Any helpful tips? Its at times like this when i *almost* regret cosleeping etc, my sister seems to have it "so easy" with her baby that has always slept in her own bed from day 1...and i KNOW what i am doing is right for me, but my poor husband is rapidly losing faith!
Tips would be MUCH appreciated!
