But all of you mothers out there reading, I have a question or two for you. I know I just raised Alexis but memory tend to forget the bad parts when it comes to details. And there's nothing as crucial as sleep during this period of a new born, yet it's the thing lacking the most. So my scenario looks like this; Leon is most awake during the time frame of 7PM- to when we go to sleep, most often at 11PM. But then he does not want to sleep, but wants to lay on my breasts in the bed and just suck, suck and suck. Even if he already eat most of the milk, he gets extremely upset, stressed and angry when I'm trying to take him away and this results in the fact that I hardly can sleep until 2-3AM which is the time when he slowly has reached his deep sleep and I can push myself a bit away from him and get some very longed for sleep. After that he wakes up between 4-6 times. Is this a behaivor you recognise? Or most probably you do, but how did you handle it? Were there any solution? It's clear that he uses my breast as a pacifier (napp) which I know you should not let them, but who has energy for a screaming baby when all you want is to rest and sleep? You do what it takes to have them quiet and calm. I've tried giving him the pacifyer during nights but he goes crazy and spits it out.
Share your experiences with this tired mother please! Thank you!
