So miss 15 months has co slept pretty much her whole life. She's never been a great sleeper - I went through a phase I
afew months ago where I wanted her in her cot. I spent over an hout every night for 2 weeks battling her to sleep in there, when she'd wake up an hour or 2 later and we'd go through the same thing. Needless to say, we gave up.
She still breastfeeds. Only twice, maybe three times during the day. And after dinner. Then overnight, she wakes up alot (every 2 hours is a rare, good night for us!) I get sleep since we share the bed, but I'm getting a bit over it. She is SO reliant on the boob to sleep. I don't want to wean her completely, just overnight. I've tried settling her by patting, dummy, introducing comforter etc, and she becomes hysterical.
Hubby is on holidays at the moment, so now is the best time to do it. Last night hubby coslept with miss on a mattress in the lounge.
(Side note, we live in a semi so our bedroom wall is shared with our elderly neighbours bedroom wall, and we didn't want to subject them to the crying.)
I fed her after dinner as usual. She woke an hour later as usual but I got her to go back to sleep by rocking, cuddling and continously putting the dummy back in.
She slept okayish. From 11-3 she was very unsettled. Went between absolute hysterics to a whimper and back again. She was offered (and drank alot of) water in a bottle. I then fed her at 5.15 (she has always woken super early but doesn't normally want boob until much later in the day)
We were going to do the same thing again tonight. Then tomorrow night or maybe the one after, I take over and sleep with her.
Are we on the right track?? Any tips to night wean bubs over 12 months??
