Hi lovely ladies.
So recently my DH (ex) now I guess, emailed me whilst I was on holiday and told me that he no longer wants to continue working on our relationship.
I'll tell you that it wasn't a complete surprise but was a blow regardless.
My holiday has now become a permanent fixture and I'm trying to create a new life for my daughter and I.
She has started to wake up 8 times or more during the night and wanting to be fed, I've never sleep trained her and we co sleep and now more than ever I actually feel as though I (selfishly) need the co sleeping as the comfort for us both i think is helping.
However, I'm exhausted and I feel myself losing my patience to the point where I yelled at her for the first time the other night and now I feel just terrible.
Can anyone give me advice on a nice gentle way to wean her of the boob at night and at the same time help her self settle herself to sleep without needing me to do it?
haha .... sound impossible?
She's 14 months.
Also ... solo parenting, anyone doing this?
Any tips on staying sane ... I Love my daughter more than anything in the world but it means now that i get no time for myself, even a visit to the bathroom is accomopanied by my little diamond, of course I don't mind but I'd love an hour or so just to me so I can get my head around the drastic change in my life!
Thank you x
