This is the 3rd night in a row Archie has literally been attached to me Basically all night. To the point where if I try and sneak his dummy in to give myself a break he cries. Like he’s not even asleep enough to trick him with his dummy.
3 nights! And when he’s attached, I’m not sleeping.
We gave in to co-sleeping at around 7 months, for the sanity of the household. It’s the best thing we did, but it doesn’t mean every night is good. Nor does it mean breastfeeding is easier.
In actual fact I think some nights he feeds more, especially when he is in pain. Which is less of a feed and more of a suck, and a weird hand that rubs across the top of my chest while he tries to relax back to sleep.
It drives me crazy.
So after a whole night of non stop bad date spec touching me. The next night we battle it out.
And by the morning I’ve had enough of the touching, in fact of anyone touching me.
So we drive around in circles till he naps in the car. I sit there with no one touching me for over an hour. It’s bliss.
It makes the 3rd night a little easier, but I definately have to give myself a pep talk on the reasons I’m still breastfeeding at that point.
I have zero idea why he’s having a hard time, but when does anyone know what’s going on?
I’ve given him some panadol and he’s just fallen asleep watching me type (I know, I wouldn’t have believed it myself if I didn’t see it!) .
Fingers crossed he sleeps all night, apparently we are going to the gym at 6am.
Wish me luck!
