Hi Ladies, I have a son who will be 3 mons next week.. I am breastfeeding and currently Co-Sleeping with him. Hubby sleeping in other room because he has to work the next day and needs his sleep. Cannot be up 2-3 times a night. Would like Jordan to sleep in his own bed, but when i try and put him down for a nap during the day he just cries and cries then if he falls asleep he only sleeps for 30 to 40 min or so. Anyone else ever had this problem? How do you get your baby to sleep by himself and learn how to self sooth and not use me as the passy? He sleeps for 3 hours in the swing no problem. I cannot stand the crying in the crib... it just breaks my heart he is so upset and does not want to be there. Has anyone else had this problem? His Doctor said it is a fine line some babies are more needy than others. She said don't let him get to the point of no return but go in when he is upset pick him up calm hime down put hi m back.
Who is she kidding? He is upset and wants to nurse to calm down. If i put him back in he just gets upset again. Not to mention i am not getting much sleep with him in bed with me. If i nurse him in bed and he falls asleep, as soon as i try to move away from him and get comfy myself.. he wakes up. Guess he just loves being close to mommy. lol. So any ideas?
