Please, please can someone help me. I really cannot take anymore. My LO is 13 months old, won't drink from a bottle or cup & has ZERO independence, I mean zero, he is like a giant newborn that can walk (but perfers to cling to my legs screaming). He cries all day long until I pick him up, other than myself only DH can pick him up, but DH cannot get him to sleep. He will not go to sleep without my boob in his mouth, he wakes at least every hour & I have to maneuver him around the bed to keep swapping sides (we co-sleep & my boobs are becoming increasingly sore), then he bites me before he actually starts feeding. His sleep is appauling, he thrashes around when he does actually sleep, meaning that I cannot sleep even when he does. This isn't a phase, this is just him, I really want to - NEED to stop BF, I need a break, I need some sleep. I have tried to remain positive, but I can't anymore I can feel I'm starting to resent him. I want to stop co-sleeping, but he just will not sleep without boob. I want him to have some independence and not have to be attached to me all day long. Please do not get me wrong I am the most baby led mother I know, I do feel that I lean very much towards attachment parenting, but the way my son is, is just too much he needs to be able to interact with other people as well as me! I've tried to increase he food intake - he's not all that bothered with solids. I have tried to increase his BF in the day, he just takes as much as I offer & still feeds all through the night. I have stopped BF in the day, he still refuses to drink anything, he throws his cup and keeps his mouth firmly closed, he'll happily wait until night time to take all he needs. I'm thinking my only option is to go cold-turkey & just stop feeding him completely, it seems that's the only way I'm ever going to get him to drink from a cup. Then from there I can tackle the sleep issues and his need to cling to me all day. Even writing this was a complete battle, with him clinging to me, pulling my hair & screaming. Has anyone got any suggestions at all for a desperate Mum?
