Parisa goes to sleep pretty peacefully during the day or at night as long as I nurse her to sleep. She usually takes three 2-hour naps during the day - but they are much shorter if I don't nurse her when she stirs and whimpers. I'm usually right there in bed, trying to get a nap myself, which rarely happens because I get woken up by her wanting to nurse. Recently it's become the same story at night...all night.
She usually doesn't wake up fully at night, just stirs and fusses until I nurse her. We've also been practicing elimination communication and recently I've noticed that if she does start crying, she usually has to potty, so I've been pottying her at around 2 or 3 am and again around 5 or 6 am. If I don't potty her, she continues to cry off and on (as opposed to just fussing). Unfortunately, she doesn't sleep solidly afterwards, but she stops crying.
I've viewed this as "just the way it goes" but now I'm having trouble being fully present with her (or any task) during the day. I need sleep or I'm going to pass out!! Any advice or thoughts would beGREATLY appreciated!!
Thanks so much!!
