My 3 month old sleeps next to me and wants to nurse all night.  My neck/back is soooo sore from this and I'm completely exhausted since I havent gotten more than 2 hr sleep in a row in three months.  This wasnt a huge deal until I went back to work a couple weeks ago and my afternoon naps went poof.   Anyone know how to transition baby into his own space?   He currently lasts about 10 minutes before he wakes up screaming.  I dont want to use CIO, he is too young anyway. Or any suggestions to get him to not want to nurse all night??

Honestly, if he wants to nurse nothing will likely help. He is likely comfort sucking so you can try a pacifier but it may not work.

Sorry, IMO that's what 3 month olds do. They nurse.

Put a pillow underneath and behind your back. That's the only thing that worked for me in the side lying position. Slept with him nursing great after that.

Pacifiers are hit or miss with him.  Sometimes it will work.

Yup. It's kind of their thing.
