Im exhausted and I need some help I don't know if i can physically or mental go threw another night like last night........... Thanks in advance for any advise...

12 month growth spurt?

Does he sleep at all in his own crib? Maybe you could try to put him to sleep there then move him to your bed after the first wake up?

Have you tried a paci? I know many moms are against them, but at this age it won't confusion and he might just need to soothe.

If you don't want him nursing all night, time to move him. Great article on changing the sleep pattern in the family bed on drjaygordon.com.

He's 100% normal, though. And you're not allowed to keep your sanity. Part of the motherhood sentence.

Is there anyone else in your home who can handle nighttime for a few nights so you can sleep? If so, hand him to them with instructions not to come get you for X amount of hours.

Though, I agree with gdiamante, sanity is gone once you sign the motherhood contract. :-)

Awww honey.  Sounds like he has the need to suckle in all hours of the night.  I was lucky in that we can give my son a pacifier (for the same reason) and it doesn't seem to bother him and his latching.  Perhaps you should give it a shot :)

Good luck!
