* You feel as though you haven't got enough
* Baby getting upset at the breast (though can be a sign of other common problems)

default night time feeds

Post by emmiesmummy on Mon Jul 20, 2009 8:19 am

Emily still wakes 2-3 times a night every night and I havent slept properly since i was about 5 months pregnant thanks to pelvic disorder,so as you can imagine i am WAY beyond tired !!
Last few weeks i have slept on her floor so she knows im there but said no to 2nd & 3rd feed as they are habit & not hunger,but she just stays awake often from 3-6am so im even more knackered. :icondoh:

Well Dave last night said my sleep needs to start being a priority as shes now older & doesnt really need all these feeds ,he doesnt want me to stop :boob: in fact he wants me to continue but thinks i need to start looking after myself too.
So last night he slept on her floor & each time she woke he just shhushed her to sleep,he has said he will do this all week & she how she gets on,if progress is made he will keep going till habit is broken & is physically possible as he works very long hours & does hard manual work so needs sleep too (in my opinion).
Has anyone else tried this approach and how have you found it,did it work? how long did it take?

First of all, what a very caring & considerate bloke you have there!!. Can`t imagine my hubby doing that.

Can`t offer any advice as Penny still wakes a couple of times in the night aswell. Good luck.

Well I have a similar problem with lil miss... She drives me nuts waking up at night and demanding boobie. DH will go in and try and settle her and more often than not she will, but it took a long time and a whole Easter holiday to acheive. If she won't go down, DH brings her in to me for a feed. But its always him first.

well Dave is still on Emily's floor she only woke once last night & literally squeaked & he just said lie down & she went straight back to sleep,so 4 days in & it seems to be working,she hasnt come in our room once & night time feeds either & i have to say when she wakes in the morning she is looking as bright as a button.v Shes also starting to go to bed earlier,where she used to be up playing till ten most nights she is now sleepy at 8-9 so its all moving in the right direction.

I think the time has been right for her a few months back when we tried she would scream & cry when she woke ,where now shes just sleepy looking and happy to go back to sleep.
