So... Porter seems to be doing a lot of snacking at night. He has been sleeping in the bed with me and will wake up a lot. Sometimes if I just put my hand on him or snuggle a little he will go back to sleep. If that doesn't work, he wants to eat. He will seriously suck a few times and then roll back over and go to sleep. Sometimes I don't even know if he gets any milk. So frustrating! I'm so tired bc I don't get much consecutive sleep! Last night I can't tell you how many times I woke up when he started stirring and I had fallen asleep with my boob still out and it had been an hour or more. Lol. I don't know what to do to try and make it stop! If he isn't in the bed with me and he wakes up he screams like someone just punched him.

I forget what it's called but there is a gentle way to partially night wean. Hugs Hun, I've been there and it's tough!

Thanks. I don't want to night wean completely. I just wish he would sleep like 4 or 5 hours in a row. He has been doing this waking up every hour or two (or you know, 45 minutes) for months now. I've tried everything I can and nothing helps or works. And I refuse to CIO, so I have tried everything except that. I am starting to seriously get irritated with my husband bc he gets to sleep. And I have not had even half a nights sleep in probably 8 or 9 months at least. And he can't help me much bc of his stupid shoulder! Ugh. I need a husband with 2 functional arms.

Wish I had some advice. Ellianna still eats quite a few times through the night.

No advice either. Henry snacks too. Sometimes I think he needs reassurance that I am still there. I might weaned Abri when she was 14 months old because she would snack every 90 minutes 24/7.

I think this is a lot of it too. If he wakes up and I have gotten up to pee or something he totally freaks out. The same way he does if I have tried to put him to sleep in his room. I think he gets scared if he wakes up at night and I'm not right there. During the day if I have put him down for a nap alone he doesn't usually scream when he wakes up like he does at night.

I have no advice either. Zack wakes a lot thru the night to snack. I've gotten in the habit of just leaving the boob out for him and that way he can just latch on and go right back to sleep.
