How do I get him to stop! (PIOG)

I love BFing, don't get me wrong. But I am so sick of being a pacifier. My LO wakes 1-5 times a night and won't go back down without me! UGH! I cannot cosleep, it's just not for me. I wouldn't care as much if I didn't have to work (and I get up at 5am!). He screams bloody murder when DH tries to go in there and calm him down. I just don't know what to do! HELP!

Sorry, I have no advice. My 15 month old still wakes up 1 or 2 times at ngiht but I don't mind, mainly because we co sleep & I can go back to sleep. Since you said you couldn't do that then I have no other advice. Hopefully someone else can help.

Mine is the same way, but he's only 4 months.  For now, I just bring him into my bed to nurse.  Sometimes I try to put him back down by himself, other time he just stays in bed.  It's the best way for me to get any sleep.

mine is three months and i have to give her a pacifier from time to time because she likes to fall asleep when nursing, so if i give her the pacifier she sort of falls asleep by herself from time to time.

He just has to get used to daddy coming to comfort him.  It won't happen overnight.

This is one of those things that has to be endured, I'm afraid. There are no magic cures.

This is what I think too....try different tactics and strategies and see if you can find one that works for you and him

I am going through the same thing with my baby who is 10 weeks. SO tries to take him so I can sleep and DS SCREAMS until I pick him up. But I just try to remind myself it wont be like this for long eventhough I also get up at 5 for work.

 I wish he would take a binky but he never has! He is almost a year so I really don't want to start it now, either.
