I am practicing attachment parenting, so my 7 mo old sleeps in bed with me. Until he was 6 mo old, he slept in a sleep positioner and would sleep 8-9 hrs straight. . He also almost NEVER cried. Well, he outgrew the positioner (would roll out of it) and I am lucky if he sleeps 3 hrs straight. He cries upon each waking and will only settle if nursed. I am totally exhausted. Is this a phase? or is this the way things are going to be from now on? He cries a lot now, which makes me feel like a failing mom. We use hylands teething tablets, but I don't think it is always due to teething. HELP!
