Ds is 11 months old and still wakes pretty much every hour to nurse. I am, after 11 months, beginning to wear out and tire out. I'm becoming exhausted during the day and am looking for some change.
Has anyone tried this method? How did it work for you? Would you do it again if given the choice?
I'm not looking to completely wean at night and could go on if it was every 2, 3 or 4 hours but every hour is tough. Not so bad on the nights where he and I sleep soundly in between but terrible on the nights where he is restless in between or god forbid waking every 20-30 minutes!!
What I'm worried about is of course the fight and the crying. If I can take it. I'm worried - because ds only goes to sleep with one of us walking/bouncing/dancing him to sleep. Except after he's in bed for the night - than he nurses and falls back asleep at the breast in bed. So I'm concerned about what's going to happen when I don't nurse him - he will most likely wake completely - which at that point do I just lie with him until he falls asleep?? I've tried this before - at bedtime - it doesn't go over well at all.
Should I maybe just try to lengthen his time between feedings first?? Has anyone done this?? How did you do this?
Thanks for any advice!!
