Challenging Babies

I don't want to come across all sanctimonious about co-sleeping. It's still really hard sometimes, especially when your baby is "high needs" like the Cave munchkin. It's hard to maintain good humour in the middle of the night when she decides to have a screaming fit for no apparent reason. It's hard when she can't sleep without constant attachment to the nipple. It's really tough when you rely on nursing to get her to sleep, and she decides to act like the breast is burning her mouth. Having said all this, I still wouldn't swap it for cot sleeping. And I console myself with the knowledge (or is it hope) that all this is just a phase, and will pass.
