I am beyond exhausted...and frustrated...and currently in tears.
He has been miserable and crying no matter how much I feed him. He's fine AS I'm nursing him...but is now starting to spit up quite a bit, I think from eating to much.
He sleeps about 3 hour gaps during the day, but at night it's just about constant nursing. And the little (45 minutes at a time) that he does sleep at night, he'll only sleep on my chest. So I am getting ZERO sleep.
I don't have the option to nap..I have a 3 year old..and husband works weekends.
I am seriously considering giving him formula at night and I really don't want to. But I'm going to go crazy!! I don't want to be this run down exhausted mom who is in a terrible mood! (My poor 3 year old!)
My other son was sleeping 6-7 hours a night at this point and he was formula fed.
Please talk me out of supplementing!!
Please give me some ideas/help with what I can do for him? Hope..encouraging words..anything?
Thank you all!
