I have a leach!!!
Hi guys as you know I am a first time mommy and boy is there a lot to learn. I have two little problems that I am facing not that my son has hit 5 months. I am co bedding and he loves the boob. I started co bedding because it was really hard for me to get up at night sit in a chair and feed him. So I just had him lay next to me and eat if he needed it. Most of the time he will just fall asleep nursing and them wake up 6is hours later to eat again. But now that he is 5 months I am wondering when is the right time to start to get him into a crib and how do I do it. We have one room so the crib is in my bedroom and I can't have him cry himself to sleep because of when my husband works. I do put him in his crib to play sometime so he can get used to the idea of being in there.
So what I think I am going to start doing is getting him to sleep and then trying to move him over...? Have you had this problem before? Are you a co bedder?
The other problem I am facing is that he LOVES to nurse. I guess that really is not a bad thing. Other then its hard to get him on. Most of the time I am lying of the bed nursing him and trying to you all. I really want to breastfeed him for a year, but I am wondering at what point do I start to try and weaning him?
Still I must say I do not regret co bedding him or loving him as much as I do. He is my world and I have been waiting for him to come into my life for many years now. That and I am still not sure if I want to move him out yet......
Go read Sleep Number.... Baby to see how we did.
