I just don't know what to do anymore. DS is 14 months, and is teething. But he's always teething. Last night he woke up at 10 and I brought him to bed with us. He nursed on and off for an hour. Either he would unlatch and roll over and start crying or I would unlatch him and he would sleep for a few minutes and then start crying again. His latch is getting shallow and uncomfortable. I attempted to settle him a few times w/out nursing. He screams/thrashes/claws etc. He did settle once when I tried it but within 2 minutes he started again.
DH and I went to bed at 9:30 last night and at 11:00 we were still awake. DH was upset with all this and said the reason we fight all the time is b/c we never get any sleep b/c of DS. I think he resents DS b/c of this. He loves him of course, but I can understand where he is coming from. I took DS to his room (we have a crappy mattress on the floor in there) and we tried to sleep in there. The same stuff went on for at least another hour. And this continued on and off all night. I feel like crap. This is the first time we have slept in their in a while but our nights usually go something like this.
Lately when he is nursing at night all I want to do is throw him off of me. Terrible I know. I can't stand it. I can't stand him grabbing me, trying to get my other nipple, sticking his fingers in my belly button.
I really really want him night weaned but I just don't know if it would work now. I know about the Dr. Jay Gordon method. That is what I think I will use. He has 10 teeth, so that means we have 10 more to go!!!!! We had a break of about a week between teething about 2 months ago. There is never a real break, it's just one tooth after after another.
I don't know what I'm looking for here. I am just exhausted.
