    it is tiring... she was showing signs of beginning to self settle without the boob then we hit a sleep regression around 5 months and that went out the window. i feel like im stuck on my side most of the night, if i try and roll onto my back its not long before shes rooting around. my legs are stiff like when i was pregnant!

    Oh god I feel your pain, my daughters the same. I get pins and needles all the time because I cant move without her wanting boob. I realise its a comfort thing now though, so Im trying to get her attached to a dummy but she's never liked them. Does yours take a dummy?

    nah, she took to it once on a long car ride, never since. was just a one off.

    i used to be able to nurse her down then sneak out into the living room for a few hours at nite. now if i even slip out to pee, shes up. then it takes awhile to get her back down again. feels like ages since ive had some alone time with dh. would love to dtd or jus watch a movie at nite, instead being stuck in bed for 10+ hours while spending far too much time on my DS playing games or online.

    i should get an E-reader so at least id be somewhat using my brain..

    ahh bless, yeah I am in the same boat. Especially the peeing thing, and its worse now being pregnant. I do plan on putting her in her own room and work on that and see how it goes, I'll let you know how it goes lol! x
