I should know this right? After having babies, I should totally be a pro at getting a baby to sleep. Well I guess I am when I nursing, rocking, snuggling them to sleep and not letting them do it on their own! I seriously have turned Josie into a co-sleeping, non sleeping through the night, comfort, on demand nursing sleeper. Not that’s there is anything wrong with this, unless it comes to my sleep. I’m now at the point where I’m tossing and turning all night to accommodate Josie. She nurses all night long, pulls at my nipples and hits me in the head with her hand all night while nursing. I’m tired. NO. I’m exhausted. I love love love sleeping with her, having her close and snuggled. But I’m ready for her to sleep through the night in her own crib. I mean, we didn’t buy that thing for nothing right?
I feel awful doing this though. This is what she knows, she is so used to co sleeping and me being right there at every waking moment. Some people say “Oh just put her in her crib she will cry herself to sleep.” We did that with Finley and Ezra, the cry it out solution. I wasn’t a fan then and I’m not now. I really do not want to do the cry it out thing again. It’s sad and hard and it didn’t really work with the older two. So now what? Read a ton a books? Try to find something that works for us? That is almost just as exhausting than what we are doing now? I just worry about when we wean from nursing, she doesn’t take a bottle. Never has. And wont. so what do I do to help her fall back asleep? She also wouldn’t ever take a pacifier. So I’m screwed, here’s to sleepless nights, tossing and turning and lots of morning Coffee!
