I am a walking human pacifier. My daughter Saylor will be 18 months on 2/20. The only way she will nap is if I lay down with her and let her nurse the whole time. I am now 20 pounds heavier then I was after giving birth because I have to lay down with her for 2-2 1/2 hours a day. It was worse when she was napping 2x's a day. I nurse her again before bed then she wakes screaming usually around 3:30-4:30. We bring her into bed and I let her nurse/sleep on me until my husband gets up with her around 7ish. I love my daughter soooo much and know that this too shall pass but....man....this is the hardest thing. I am so very jealous of all the moms out there that have those couple of nap time hours to get things done. I'm exhuasted and am not sure how we are going to move past this. I've created a booby addict!!!!! Any help would be welcomed.
