This community is the only place I can turn where mothers will truly understand. My son just turned 2 less than a week ago, he sleeps with us in a really big bed. A typical night: he nurses to sleep, has a little snack a couple of times in the night (around 2 and or 3) and then again between 5-6 when he is trying not to wake up. Some mornings there is also a pre-breakfast snack sort of a breakfast in bed before breakfast. All this to say tomorrow night things must change.
Friday morning he has a dental appointment for which he will need to be sedated, therefore no food including breast milk after 2:00 am, and no water after 5:30. Needless to say I am very worried about Thursday night and how long he may not be able nurse afterward. He will have major work done on his front two teeth - caps, or crowns or even rebuilding them, we are not sure until we can get the x-ray.
Please any advice on how to get through the night and what to do if all of the sudden he can no longer nurse and weens completely due to this process. Also any encouragement from any who have gone through something similar.
