I understand that when you’re sleep-deprived the fact that your baby's regular wake-ups are normal is unlikely to be much consolation. Being on your knees with exhaustion can be a very lonely place, even if your partner is supporting you.
If this sounds familiar, I have a really handy tip to help you get more rest whilst giving your baby what they need too.
Personally, I chose to continue nursing my daughter for the benefits it would give to her. This has several implications, and again I’ve covered everything you need to know about breastfeeding with CMPA.
It’s no mean feat, but I’d do it again in a heartbeat.
There is a light at the end of the tunnel, and you will eventually wean your CMPA baby on to solids and off of the breast – though in my experience these two events may be a couple of years apart!
Naturally, weaning a CMPA baby is a little different to simply introducing foods to other babies, and requires lots of organisation and certain rules must be followed for the sake of your little one’s health.
This can be a tricky and stressful time. I’ve written about our journey with the intention of ‘holding your hand’ throughout the process.
I really hope the information contained here proves useful, and if you have any questions please do feel free to contact me, I’m always happy to help if I can.
Best of luck during this special time with your little one!
