I have two issues that I would REALLY appreciate some advice from everyone to help resolve them.
1). I nurse my DD to sleep, I have since the very beginning! She is now a 7 month old healthy chubby girl. Recently we introduced some solids and she seems to enjoy those. But anyways.. I've always nursed her to sleep and we also bed share. That's what has worked for the two of us, it's much simpler to roll over with her and fall back to sleep that way. However, my husband is getting more frustrated with our methods.. I don't believe in letting my baby "cry it out," and he thinks because she nurses to sleep she won't know how to put herself to sleep as she grows older. He wants to be able to put her to sleep sometimes. That's fine, she will let people bounce her to sleep.. I'm more so looking to see what everyone has tried as far as sleep time goes. He also is against bed sharing, but would be okay if she slept in her bedside sleeper..
I'm really just wary of the up and down involved in it all.. I'm so exhausted to begin with. She doesn't take a paci at all. And is such a light sleeper.
2) my husband has his business' Christmas dinner coming up. I would LOVE to go, ny husband and I haven't really had a date since I was 7 months pregnant ha! But the dinner party is out of town.. Do it'd be an overnight thing.. My baby won't drink from a bottle. She has taken my milk from a cup abd sippy cup, but not enough to constitute a whole feeding.. We are talking a few sips.. My mother is great with the baby, but I am TERRIFIED of leaving and my sweet girl starving herself! Has anyone come in contact with this issue?
