I am co-sleeping with our 4 month old daughter. I love it because I feel so much closer to her and can nurse her when SHE is hungry (not some stupid schedule). However, I find that I'm not getting much sleep. I feel like I'm always in a slight awake state. I'm exhausted! We also have a 17 month old and a 10 year old autistic child. I stay at home (thank goodness!) but have to drag myself through the day sometimes. Like I said, I love co-sleeping but I'm soo tired. Any suggestions? I have a very hard time falling asleep and staying asleep. We don't have a side car crib - she sleeps in my arms. She had horrible reflux and I had to literally sleep with her sitting up. We now know why, (she had a milk intolerance) but she is now so use to sleeping with me that she won't sleep unless she is in my arms.
