Anyway, I'm a bedsharing momma who's starting to get very frustrated. My 2 year old has upped her nursing to compensate for my supply starting to dip down. We had been trying to transition her to a bunk bed with her big sister just across the hall but we were met with all kinds of resistance so that kinda went down the tubes. If my hubby had his way, we never would have bedshared or had any sort of attachment parenting philosophy integrated in our lifestyle, so I have been holding down the fort with some difficulty (the man isn't a fan of AP but he LOVES babywearing and is very supportive of breastfeeding).
I feel like I'm not getting any rest. I have hyperemesis gravidarum as well, so basically I am lacking in nutrition already and breastfeeding is becoming extremely difficult to support. My AP friends who've experienced hyperemesis gravidarum have advised me that weaning is difficult to do during pregnancy with this condition. I don't know the science behind it, myself, but my biological desire is to push my daughter away from the breast. Instinctively I'm wanting to protect my new baby from my wriggling and rough nursing toddler.
We recently started working on the rough nursing and it seems to work for a few days, and then dd is back to kicking and pinching and kneeing me in the gut. Sleeping or not.
I just want a little support, guidance, or any tips or tricks to either end this sleep arrangement or make it better. Dh is all for extreme measures, including crying it out in the new bed (eek!).
Also... this waking up and moaning toddler... anyone else experiencing this? (I think it's night terrors maybe?)
