I had a particularily bad night last night with my 9 mo and looking for some advice.
We have started co-sleeping as she was waking frequently at night, I think probably teething, and that was going ok, but from time to time, and last night included she seems to be attached to one or the other of my breasts the entire night. I know it is more of a comfort thing than a hungry thing, but when I try to gently unattach her even if it appears she is in a deep sleep, she screams blue murder!
It is driving me insane. I end up leaving her attached most of the night, so at least DS and DH can get some sleep, and I can sleep some of the time, but my nipples get really sore from the constant sucking.
We did try to night wean a couple of months ago (by having her sleep with DH while I slept in another room), which worked for a while, but then 1 overnight feed turned into 2 turned into 3, turned into an all night co-sleeping, feeding frenzy.
She is particularily grumpy today, so I suspect it is teething troubles, but is there anything I can do except try to completely night wean again?
