I need sleeping advice

Jacob doesn't like sleeping, or so it seems. We have always co-slept with all 3 of our kids until they are about 18 months or so. So the older 2 are in their own rooms and Jacob is still in ours. He just doesn't sleep though and I KNOW he is tired. He wakes every hour at night, and I am NOT joking every hour. And the only way to get him to sleep is to nurse him. He will not take his pacifer, he HAS to nurse. I am totally against CIO, so that is not a option for me. Any other advice out there? Or is this just another "this to shall pass".

Re: I need sleeping advice

well, the only advice i have is to read the no cry sleep solution. she offers tons of suggestions, and maybe one or two will work for you. she (the author, elizabeth pantley) covers co-sleeping and nursing, so it may be worth checking out. sorry he's not sleeping. jonas went through frequent waking too, and i know it is very challenging. hang in there.

I second the No Cry Sleep Solution. There is a yahoo group for it too. They are all moms that have used or are using the No Cry Sleep Solution method.
