I posted over a week ago (if you've been there and done that please help!) and was started to have progress in night weaning my 21 month old dd.
We co-sleep and instead of nursing on the bed, we'd nurse on the couch a few minutes, I'd take her to the bed and she'd fall asleep.
We went from 4-5 night wakings to 2 - and I was thrilled.
However, the past 2 nights have been unbearable - and I can tell she's getting a cold and teething at the same time - but I'm so frustrated about the constant nursing and trouble getting back to sleep that it's giving me extreme anxiety. I can't nurse her like this anymore. I think she understands that I'm so upset - but I want to keep my cool. I feel awful.
Any suggestions? Have any of you ever gotten this desperate? We are both ending up in tears and it really freaks her out to see me crying. I feel like I've done wrong by her by making her so dependant on me for falling asleep! This can't be the way to go.
I'm pregnant - and really don't think that like this I'll be able to tandem nurse. What can I do?????????
