My LO is 11 months old, and has always nursed to sleep. She normally falls asleep on the second side, occasionally the first. We bedshare, and she goes down around 8 pm. I go to bed at about 11-11:30. She normally wakes up once, sometimes twice during that time period needing to be nursed back down. With the boob, she's very easy to settle back down. Recently her sleep quality has decreased and she's a bit restless during the night unless she has a boob in her mouth. I prefer sleeping on my back, so this isn't ideal. I always unlatch her during the night to get more comfortable, but she tends to wake more often when I do. A Normal night recently is her waking in search of or needing the boob 5-6 times per night. For a while she had cut it down to only twice or three times, but she picked it back up again. I'm thinking that stopping feeding to sleep initially may help her transition between cycles better in the long run for longer stretches of sleep for both of us. Tonight I unlatched her from my second side as she was getting sleepy, and she became instantly hysterical. She got up, screaming, started coughing, and nearly made herself sick. I tried 3 times to unlatch her when she was sleepy but awake, each time ended the same. I finally just nursed her to sleep. Any advice? I'm sure it will get better with time, all things do with babies, but has anyone else gone through this? I'm going to work on the nursing session that gets her to sleep for the night before working on the middle of the night ones (if needed). Any advice or well-wishes would be much appreciated!
