I am still breastfeeding my baby and introducing solids. We do all Organic foods but lately she is sleeping worse than when she was only receiving breast milk. I am going to our family doctor today and will ask him what may be happening along with other questions.
We cosleep, I nurse many times through the night, but right now she is waking up at least ever half hour for at least half the night. I am seriously getting exhausted and impatient. I would never sacrifice her health tho and wean her as some have suggested to me and I used to be able to put her in her crib but now she screams like crazy. From 3-6 months she would nap in her crib, and sleep 2-3 hours for the first part of our night, now she wont even sleep in her crib at all, not even for naps.
Has anyone experienced this? Could it be her age? The solids? Seperation anxiety? I am very into "attachment" parenting.
