Total vent here, as no one irl understands...My 16 month old dd co-sleeps and nurses much of the night. Well, there comes a time where I'm just worn out from nursing. Last night was one of those times.

From about mid-night on, she was waking up every hour, wanting to nurse. Not only wanting to nurse, but picking at my FACE while she did so. By 3:30 am, I had enough.

I snuggled with her and she would not go back to sleep. She was up until 5 am. I've done this before and it's much of the same lately. I'm going crazy! She's like a b**bie monster at night that refuses to sleep if she's not nursed. That being said, she has gone to sleep in the middle of the night without nursing, but she didn't like it. Lately, it's been horrid though.

Thanks for listening:hugs:.

It looks like she's comfort nursing. Have you tried amping up the protein content for her dinner. Maybe she gets hungry by the middle of the night? Can you not offer her a bottle?

Sounds awful. I'm sorry.

:hugs: I know how you feel. I went through that with ds.

She could be hungry. Definitely a growth spurt around that age. Hang in there ! It's rough.

I think we have the same baby! But if I tell her "all done" she gets so sad. :(

I'd make sure she is having a big dinner, not too early (carbs seem to help us).

Also can you try having her fall asleep to naps different ways (in the car, in a carrier, being rocked, etv) so that he doesn't think she HAS to nurse to get back to sleep? This seems to be helping us, but slowly. Also popping her off as soon as possible is helping my dd learn to resettle from a light sleep/almost asleep state without nursing. Worth a try!
