My DS just turned 1! Anyway he sleeps from about 7pm-4 AM. I get up at 6AM and am guilty about putting him in the bed with me from 4am-6am. This wouldn't be a problem but he wants to breastfeed from 4-6AM. I am trying to regain my fertility and think this might be hurting my chances. I know he doesn't need to eat and is using me as a pacifer. But if I take him off the boob and just try to get im to sleep with me he just cries. And if I try to put him to bed but not feed him back to sleep he cries.
Any suggestions. Should I feed him at like 4am until he is back to sleep then put him back in his crib? Would that help me more than him eating for 2 hours (fertility wise?)
Should I let him cry it out? That is hard for me. He doesn't take a paci either.
I am down to pumping once a day (I know I don't need to but I am weaning myself off the pump too). Bf (4-6AM he is in bed with me attached), pump at 12PM, bf at 7pm.

did you get your period back yet? i have never let my dd cio and never will. she nurses for food and comfort during the night. i don't see anything wrong with it, or letting it continue. plenty of women get pregnant while nursing. you may dry up when you get pregnant, which will take care of the weaning for you. why do you think it is affecting your fertility?
