I have a 5 year old who is wonderfully "easy" to care for. Meaning he sleeps in his own room, sleeps peacefully through the night, etc. etc. Then I have my 19 month old nurser. He was born with a heart abnormality that was repaired so even though he's "good as new", I have definitely been overprotective and super nurturing with him. I am almost 12 weeks pregnant with our third baby and I'm feeling the 1st trimester tiredness, sore boobs, and just generally overwhelmed. Especially at night! My DS co-sleeps with my DH and I and will nurse continuously throughout the night. Not sleeping well at night leads me to feel so tired during the day. And sometimes depressed because of all that is not getting done. Is this normal toddler nursing behavior? Am I over-coddling him? I can't bear to have him CIO. But how much longer can I be so sleep deprived. Then I think about my hospital stay and how difficult it will be for him without me. Then I think about tandem nursing...I feel tired now! How will I feel then? Can anyone help me?? Please??
