Right, here is the overview... its pretty long sorry!
- My son Phoenix is 14 months old, we co-sleep and i still BF regularly and if it's his bedtime he usually falls asleep whilst feeding too.
Phoenix recently started waking up, kicking and thrashing about in his sleep, it was impossible for me to get any sleep what so ever because when is thrashing about he inevitably touches me, and the upon realising i'm right there demands a feed (Its a very hot climate here too, so its like sleeping with a sweaty kicking hot water bottle)
SO I placed a cot next to my bed, (it was a last resort) one side is open so is literally right next to me, this works brilliantly he sleeps like a log.... that is until i decide to go to sleep, then literally RIGHT as i'm falling asleep he wakes up and crawls over, so i feed him and he goes back to his cot... 10 minutes later same thing happens
now repeat this about... oh, 5 or more times. I eventually just say to him 'ok, just sleep right next to me' and pass out
i am just SO TIRED and so mega crabby its not even funny, I don't know what to do about this as my brain has melted and I'm like a sleep deprived zombie woman
help me please oh wise AP ladies!!!!!!
