Hi I am new here. My son is 6 1/2 months old now and is breastfeed since birth with no issues. My problem is his sleep habits. First of all, I have tried putting him is his crib and he is up so much during the night that I have now resorted to cosleeping. He nurses throughout the night every time he awakens (between 4-6 times) I have to get up for work at 6:30 am so it is really hard on me. Also as soon as I get up in the morning he won't sleep even though he is tired and my DH is not very happy with the situation. My son also will not nap at my mom's (who watches him while I am at work) and he is exhausted when I pick him up.
So my question is do you think that my son cannot sleep without nursing every time he awakens and that's why he won't nap/sleep either because I am not around? What can I do to change this behavior? I really feel his lack of sleep is not healthy for his developing brain.
Please help, thank you so much!!!
