I have posted before about my 6 month old son waking up all night to nurse. We currently have him in the bed with us and he is waking to nurse every 2 hours. I am working part time so this is getting exhausting!!
In addition, I feel like he wants to be attached to me 24/7! He will not really go to sleep at night until we come to bed - he wakes about every 30-60 minutes and has to be rocked back to sleep again. Also, he will not play by himself for very long without crying for me and during the day naps are hard to come by unless I lay down to nap with him. As much as I love my son I do need some time in the day for myself!!!!!!
I don't want to let him "cry it out" by any means but am worried that he is too dependent and also that he is not getting enough sleep.
We go to the dr tomorrow for his 6 month visit so I am hoping that starting solid foods will help!
