I am hesitant to complain because my son does his best nursing at night, but the "on-demand" feeding has me waking every two hours and I am so sleep deprived I can't think straight. I'm a not so nice mom to my 3 year old because I am so overtired and I worry that I am going to get into an accident during my commute because I am not as alert as I should be. Can anyone offer some tips of how to cope with this phase? My son sleeps right next to me in our bedroom, but I have to wake to get him latched, and then I have to wake to change a diaper at least once in the night so he doesn't flood. Having only two hours of sleep at a time between each feeding is perfectly healthy for an exclusively breastfed baby, but how is the mother supposed to function?
