Re: Sleeping Issues - is this normal?
I would definitely keep researching self soothing and night weaning options. Clearly what you are doing is not working since he is so low energy and whiney during the day so don't feel bad if you have to make some changes. Change can be hard for kids but he might surprise you. Perhaps you could fine some methods that you can stick with long enough to see some results. The first questions to answer are, do you still want to continue co-sleeping and/or night nursing? Once you decide yes or no to these questions, you can find a direction of methods available. What is it that you want him to be able to do when all is said and done?
