No matter how often I nurse Bethy during the day, or how much food I feed her just before bed, she awakens three times between the hours of 10pm and 5am to nurse.
Is she really hungry?? At 9 months, I doubt it.
Do I desparately want sleep?? Of course.
Why haven't I taken charge of the situation?? I'm too much of a goober over snuggling that little booger while she derives her satisfaction and comfort from the only person on Earth that can give it to her.
Sleep for ego boost?? Sounds like a fair trade to me.
...at least until November 11.
