I need some reassurance about overnight waking and nursing with my 14month. She is still waking 5-6 times a night and I almost always nurse her back to sleep. I feel mostly fine about this for now, though there are definitely times when I wish I could wave a magic wand and have her STTN like she did 7 months ago before her sleep regression began. Sometimes I worry that if I don't actively make efforts to night wean her she will never stop waking and nursing so much. I know that's wrong and that it's all part of the maturation process, but it seems like it's taking so long, especially when I talk to other parents who are shocked to hear how much my DD wakes up.
I just need to hear from you moms of older toddlers. Please tell me it will happen eventually, that she will sleep longer than 2 hours at a time Please! BTW, it doesn't usually seem like she's actually hungry when she wakes. She's been teething constantly from 5 months and is now working on her 4th molar. She's also not quite walking. I keep hoping that once these developmental things progress, she'll start sleeping longer, but it never seems to work out that way. I just need a little perspective and reassurance. Thanks!
