So, Nicholas is 13 months, and is waking up more during the night now, than he ever did his entire life. He goes down around 8, gets up at 10, 11:30, 2, and then starting at 4am will switch boobs every like, 15-30 minutes. I'm going INSANE and I'm exhausted, which is making me run on a short fuse and I'm super grumpy. I hate feeling this way. We are co-sleeping, I do move him to the pack n play in our room sometimes but he ends up back in bed. I don't know how to go about changing this. (This is not very new, really, the 4am constant boob switch has been happening for a good 2 months, the other wakings are recent).
Any suggestions??

well, if he is starting to walk, that could be the culprit. Otherwise, why do you have to offer him the boob every time? can you soothe him down to sleep another way and maybe keep the nursing to every 2-3 hours? have you read the No SLeep Cry Solution?

Omg. Jade does this. She's 7 months and has to eat all night. And forget about offering other soothing things. She wants boobs like yesterday! If I try other things , she gets madder which makes her more awake and alert and then once she's fully awake, she refuses to go back to sleep. Ugh!
It's like "she asleep but awake at the same time looking for a boob"
And we cosleep so sometimes she actually puls the boob from my sleep bra and starts nursing while were both asleep =\
What an odd way to be woken up. Lol

^Ditto. He helps himself most of the time, but when he crawls over me to get the other boob is when he wakes me up

No problem there. I sleep on my left side with my left boob closest to her. She HATES my right boob and doesn't exert herself to get to it. If its right there in her face she will entertain it for a bit but won't party toouch on that side. Lol
