...is not a sleeper. The first 5 weeks when he would only nap on me, I thought "this too shall pass". Then the weeks that followed where he'd wake every 2 hours at night to feed I thought "this too shall pass." And it did.
He started sleeping at least one 5 to 6 hour chunk at night. It was bliss. But, it passed.
He's back to waking to eat every 3 hours at night, and I'm at the point I am so tired, I want to weep. A boy who is 13 pds does not need to eat that often. He's still co-sleeping with me, same as Grace did until she was 6 months old. I don't feel ready to move him to his crib, and am not sure that would be the solution. This breastfeeding bit is new territory to me, and I wonder if he was on formula at night if that would be a solution. First he would have to want to take a bottle though. I'm at a bit of a loss and am open to suggestions, or even just virtual hugs... or hand holding while I weep the weariness out.
