Up until now I nursed Jordan to sleep. I know all the books say I used to do things the "wrong" way but I'm pretty adamant that I did what was necessary for all of us. I had to do what worked and then I stuck with it because we were all happy.
Now that I've had to wean Jordan it's really put a snag in naps. Bedtime is working okay with Jason rocking her until she is relaxed or asleep and she might fuss for about 10-20 seconds when he lays her down but that's it. Nap time is a whole different story. I've been trying to rock her to sleep and either she just won't go to sleep or she gets to sleep but wakes and panics the second I lay her down. I've tried picking her back up, rocking her all over again with the same results. I've tried sitting in her room and even laying on the floor but she just cries for me and will not lay down. A couple of times I walked out and she might have cried and then settle to fussing and then went to sleep on her own but it's happened twice or three times at most. Other times she just gets more and more upset and I can't leave her like that for long. I max out around 10 to 15 minutes before I have to go back in to comfort her but that means picking her up and holding her. I don't want to let her cry but what else can I do?
I'm not sure if you all will have any suggestions or this is just a way for me to vent my frustration. I miss laying her down and her sleeping peacefully but nursing just isn't an option I have anymore. My OB was very adamant that I stop asap.
