Ok, I know I am more stressed out right now because we are dealing w/ the thrush thing. But, I am starting to get a little tired of her using me as a pacifier at night. I know it is a comfort thing and I don't want to take that from her. She is 5 months old now and wakes about every 2 hours at night. Sometimes I know she eats, but other times I think she realizes she isn't on me. My hips are starting to hurt at night from lying on my side. Any tips? I guess I'm just lazy, but I know if I move her to her crib I will probably be getting up more at night w/ less sleep and I know I will be grumpy! Sometimes I dream of her sleeping through the night like the babies of friends who are formula fed. She is soooo different from my 1st. At this age I don't remember her on me all night and I had her in her crib at 9 months. I know that is 4 months away, but, I can't see that happening w/ this baby. Hopefully I'm wrong. Breastfeeding is so much harder this time around- life is busier- an 8 year old and working full time. I know I am whining. But, I am so ready to quit. Then I feel guilty because I want to give her the same I gave #1 daughter. I think if we could get the sleep thing better, I will make it.
So, just want to know... how do I get her to eat then sleep-not attached to me?
