My baby sleeps all day. I try to wake her, but it is basically impossible. When bedtime comes she doesn't want to sleep. As soon as she enters our bedroom all she wants to do is breastfeed. She could literally suck on my breast the whole ENTIRE night.
I let her breastfeed and she falls asleep and lets go. I put her down in a cosleeper that fits between my dh and I.... about 2 min later she starts moving and fidgeting... then starts to scream and wants my breast again.I have tried giving her a pacifier, but she just spits it out after a while.
The only thing that will get her quite is if I put her in my arms while I sleep. I don't think it is very safe to do so? I eventually resort to this at 5am because I feel like I'm going to pass out! This is the only way I can get any sleep. I feel like I'm starting a bad habit doing this.
I'm so tired and don't know what to do! I don't know how much longer I can take without any sleep.
I don't know what I'm doing wrong.
I keep wondering if I am providing her with enough milk in the nights? Or maybe she just wants to be in my arms at night?
I am considering pumping and trying to give her bottles in the night. Maybe, she needs more milk in the night? Plus, my dh could help more and I would get a little sleep.
I'm so confused
