Help getting my daughter to sleep through the night
I am a first-time single mom. My daughter is 13 months. We finish eating dinner by 6 or 7. So around 7pm to 8pm every night I give my daughter a bath, read her a book, breastfeed her and she usually falls asleep in my arms and I put her in her crib, which is near my bed in my room. I usually go to bed an hour or so later. (Just so I can get as much sleep as possible!) And than she is up 2 to 3 hours later fussing. So I usually get her out of her crib feed her and than just let her sleep with me because frankly it is easier than trying to move her back to her crib. But I am started to go a little crazy from lack of sleep, waking up every couple hours to feed her and then we are up by 6am or 7am. Should I stop the co-sleeping? What is the best way to get her to sleep through the night? Should I move her crib? I can move it to another room it is just down the hall so I didn't want to have to get up all night & go down the hall to comfort her. That may sound terrible but I am so tired and have been for over a year now. I am sure that is typical esp with the other single moms out there! Tell me how do you all do it?! Thanks!
