This hit a little too close to home for me! LOL. My daughters both nursed every 2 hours or so until we did a brutal cry-it-out session at 10 months old. I sobbed along with them but it had to be done because I went back to work at 3 months and could not function on only a few 90 min. sessions of sleep per night. I only agreed to cry-it-our after it became a safety issue, as I fainted twice and hit my head as I tried walking to their bedrooms on such limited sleep. I'm so relieved that those days are long past us now.
