Once again I am still having a difficult time with Quinlan and sleep. I guess more that Quinlan isn’t sleeping and is more and more attached to me, literally. It seems like Quinlan is unable to sleep even when he is a few feet away from me. He wants to be attached to me. He wants to be nursing all night long. I am so tired and Anthony is not faring much better.
Don’t get me wrong, I love nursing Quinlan, I just wish he would take a bottle once in a while, or drink some milk. I love the closeness that breastfeeding affords me, but I am starting to worry that I will never sleep more than a couple of hours straight again. Even trying to let Quinlan fall back to sleep on his own, with minimal CIO (less than a couple of minutes with us in the room just a few feet away) is met with absolute hysteria.
I am going to have to try to sleep train again. I just wish we had another room so that we didn’t have to worry about the one person in this house that is getting any sleep at all.
Any ideas on winning some money or getting a one year old to drink cow milk? I think it would improve the sleeping situation immensely.
