My 12-month-old doughter is down to nursing twice sometimes three times a day, . I have enjoyed a nice nursing relationship but I think is time to learn her how to fall asleep without nursing. Nursing is also becoming painful and so uncomfortable. I do not know what is that, but Ella is latching so hard that my skin around nipples is broken down.It hurts.
I have always nursed her down for naps. It was just easy and reliable, what can I say. For the last week I have substituted rides in the stroller, as well as a few car rides. The problem is Ella keeps screaming and crying. There are days she fall asleep after crying, but I think it is because she gets really tired.
I do not mind to nurse her before bed, I think this is nice routine how to go sleep, but what bother me is that she still keeps waking up twice sometimes three times during the night, crying, screaming. I always try to wait couple of minutes to enter her room and give her breast. Sometimes she fall asleep, but most of the time she keeps screaming. I do not know if she is hungry or just nurse for comfort. i am thinking if she does that for comfort she would latch only few minutes, but in her case she is drinking about 10-15 min.
i do not know what to do, but I would like some help how to start napping during the day without nursing and also not to breastfeed her during the night.
she is good eater, the dinner is always around 7PM, usually big bowl of puree veggies with meat or fish, cheese, her...
