First let me say that I'm so proud of myself for making it this far. DS was 6 months this past 13th. I only made it to 5 1/2 mos with DS2 and half of that was supplementing with formula. I have PCOS and just don't respond well to the pump. I pump as often as I can and nruse as often as I can and work so hard to make enough milk for DS2 while I'm working. I work FT.
My problem is DS2. If he's tired and wih me then he wants to nurse. Period. I cannot get him to sleep without nursing him. If I'm even in the house, he wants me to nurse him to sleep. How do I break him of this? I don't mind doing this sometimes but it doesn't matter if I fed him an hour ago, he'll want to nurse himself to sleep.
Also, DS2 sleeps in our room in a Rock-n-play sleeper. He still nurses several times in the night. Same thing, he wants to nurse himself to sleep. Lastnight, I kid you not, he nursed probably 6 times because he kept waking up. I want to move him to his crib but don't know how to do it and at htis rate, I'd NEVER get sleep because I'd be in there constantly nursing him. Should I let him CIO? I'm not opposed to this if it's just that he needs to learn to put himself back to sleep. It's not that I don't mind nursing in the night because I don't and it helps keep up my supply but anymore than 2 times a night, 3 at most IMO.
Anyway, TIA ladies for the advice!
