Night time weaning
I am exhausted. D is still up in the middle of the night. I can't count how many times because really it's one long time. I am small breasted so nursing while laying down is not easy at all. I have to contort my body and after about an hour need to move. Plus, D has the worst latch and his pacifier latch can be downright painful. I get to the point where I want to run from the room screaming. But if I take the nipple out of his mouth he goes ballistic. My husband has tried to take him in another room to sooth him so I can get some sleep, but he just screams and screams. He will be two in September. What do I do? I've heard of others being successful at night weaning. I don't even mind nursing him in the middle of the night, but I don't want to be a pacifier because I can't sleep twisted up like that. So if he would just nurse, let me unlatch him and then just cuddle I'd be fine. Suggestions please. I'm getting sick every two weeks from getting 4 hours of broken sleep at night.
