My 4 month old is a cute bundle of joy. I just can't appreciate his cuteness because I haven't slept in 4 months. He only has ever fallen asleep while I am rocking him and nursing him. He wakes up about 6 times a night, and cries whenever I set him down - so I spend the whole night with him in my arms and with him using me as a pacifier. During the day naps are the same. He only naps for about 30 min at a time, and it takes me about 30 min to rock him and nurse him to sleep. It is getting to the point where I need to make a change or I won't survive his first year. So, if I am thinking about making changes, AKA "sleep training", what should I do? Google searches come up with so many contradicting ideas I am lost. Any advice is greatly appreciated. What has worked for you? Thank you!!!
