hello, my daughter just turned one and has been in the family bed since she was 5 weeks old.
i am still nursing and will continue to do so for as long as she wants, the problem is she wakes
several times a night and the only way i know of getting her back to sleep is to nurse her.
i have tried different things such as encouraging her to lay back down and walking with her,
however that just escalates her crying. i have not had a full night sleep in over a year and a half
and any ideas would be greatly appreciated!Thanks!

Sleep is a learned art but is she passifying herself back to sleep or is she really hungry if she is hungry you can"t deny her food.Some breast fed babies will not eat alot during the day and snack all night it will be easier if you know she is passifying can I suggest that you need to develope a way of calming her without using the boob to do this requires a lot of patience cuddling and above all do not break her trust, When she is passifying gently take her off your breast she may fuss but you have to see it through Hope this helps
