Hi there. I have recently taken to co-sleeping with my 11mth DS, who has taken to waking frequently during the night and is unable to re-settle (used to be a very good sleeper, until he got 4 teeth all at once). I found it easier to roll over and settle him, than be up and down like a yo-yo all night. But things are not getting any better, and he is still waking alot. He usually has a comfort suck, and back to sleep. If it is early in the night, I pat him back to sleep, but after the 10th time at 2am, I do what is quick and easy. I'm also conscience of him not waking his twin sister who is in the side car cot.
I'm worried that by co-sleeping that he is waking more by the smell of my milk???? Am thinking about stopping BF if it means that we all get better sleep. What have your experiences been? Does co-sleeping & BF increase wakings?
