Ok so my daughter is now just about 9 months and is awake more at night now than ever! She used to accept a binkie and an occasional bottle at night (only if i didnt have enough milk). No longer! She only wants to suck on me ALL NIGHT and only me. Refuses the binkie and refuses the bottle. But she isn't eating, just sucking for comfort. We co-sleep, and I am no longer getting any sleep at all. She will fall asleep sucking on me, roll over on her own when she falls asleep, then 20 minutes later wake back up crying and wanting to suck again. This happens all night every night, for over a month now. I am exhausted, and and sore and chapped. I am wondering if it is time to end the co-sleeping? Does anyone else have this issue? I love sleeping with her, but I am no longer getting any sleep!
