So I started co-sleeping with my 5 week old, something I actually wanted to avoid ( I was a little nervous ab rolling over), but its actually working out better then I expected!
I started this bc he will NOT stay asleep for more then 10 min in his bassinet, but he sleeps for several hours when right next to me!
Well for the first couple of nights he slept in my arms with pillows galore either side of me. Then right next to my head (so I don't roll on him lol). NOW every time it's bed time he cries when ever he unlatches! He loves to pacify after eating so I leave him latched a little while longer than his usual 20-25 min eating period, but once he realizes he doesn't have anything in his mouth, he freaks! I really don't mind frequent feedings, but the past couple of nights I feel I can't sleep! I'm so scared to leave him latched as I sleep in fear of smothering him. I should mention I am a first time mommy so I have many fears and concerns on the subject.
I just don't know what to do ab having my breast in his mouth for 6-8 hours straight!! Is there anything I can do?? A pacifier doesn't work as he KNOWS it not me! His diapers are good so I know he's getting enough milk, he's just getting extra Clingy at bed time it seems!
Sorry for the long post, just figured some back story would help explain my situation
-one sleepy mommy!!!
