Hi, my LO is 7 months old, he was EBF for the first 25 weeks, until we began weaning into solids. Mostly he's a happy contented baby, good as gold. But he still wakes most nights every 2 hours. I'm so exhausted now and more often than not I'm extremely grumpy which is having a huge affect on my husband and older children. He also has an excessive amount of wind (bottom end) which I think is affecting his sleep quality but he will not settle back down without a feed. I've tried to wean him off me and onto a bottle but he will not take it so I just don't get a break. I'm rapidly heading towards breaking point and I'm so exhausted that I fear the night feeds are becoming dangerous as I'm beginning to doze and fear I may suffocate him with my boob or not appropriately support him leaving him to roll off and get injured. I just don't know what to do. I've considered doing the cry it out method but I can't bear to hear him cry as he has suspected asthma and gets so worked up he struggles to catch his breath amongst all the mucas. Any help right now would be greatly appreciated
