    Re: weaning question

    This morning was not good. He cried off and on for an hour to nurse and then he wanted to wake up all the way, even though it was only 6 and he had been up since 5 (he usually sleeps until 7). Then...

    Re: weaning question

    It has been a week and he doesn't even ask for nursing during the day anymore. He went to sleep last night for hubby without complaint (I was out with family). He has been much more attached to...

    Re: weaning question

    I nurse him once or twice a day besides his nap and night time (and then once or twice between 6 and when he wakes). Today so far, he has only nursed at nap time. He asked a couple more times, but...

    Re: Normal?

    Last night was miseerable. He woke every half an hour to hour and kept crying for "other side" (nursing), even when he had just been nursing. I tried tylenol, but it didn't help. He is now just...

    Re: Normal?

    I haven't really tried the side lying thing. I figured out I could just have him sort of lyinh oln top of me to nurse from that side. Hee likes to sleep on his stomach anyway so that seems to work....

    Re: Normal?

    Thanks. I guess I just needed to know it is normal.
    Meg, he hasn't slept the long stretches until he was maybe 14 months. He has been good about falling asleep since 8 months, just not staying...

    I am going to post this in the sleep section also. I apologize ahead of time for long post.

    Re: weaning by end of September?

    I don't know if he will be able to be weaned right now. He seemms so intent on nursing and nothing i do seems to take his mind off his desire to nurse. It got to the point where he was screaming...

    Re: weaning by end of September?

    I do think the slow approach would be better. My dilemma is this- my son can seem to get by without nursing for naps and even to go to sleep at night. The ones he seems to REALLY want are right...

    I have to go on a work related week long conference and will be away from my son for that long. I can't take him since it is work related. He will be about 20 months by then and I was thinking that...

    Re: seriously considering weaning

    Thank you for the replies and support. Luckily DS is night weaned, for the most part, now. He wakes at around 4:30 or 5 and wants to nurse. This morning, I didn't want to nurse him, but he kept...

    Re: seriously considering weaning

    I have calmed down a bit. When he bit me tonight, I couldn't even stay to say no, I was so upset I was worried I would do something to him. I was already hurting from him nursing on a sore breast...

    Re: seriously considering weaning

    Thanks for the reply. He isn't teething. He does it when he is done on that side. It seems like a game sometimes. In fact, if he didn't "scrape off" the nipple, as I call it (that is what it...

    seriously considering weaning

    I had originally planned on weaning at 1, but when DS turned 1, I know he loved to nurse too much for me to stop. And I read that WHO recommends nursing until 2. However, DS has been biting chunks...

    Thank you for the information. I haven't been consistent in putting him down, I guess because I think sometimes he doesn't do it on purpose, but I guess that needs to be done because I can't keep...

    chunk bitten off - help

    DS has been keeping his teeth closed when he unlatches, which has been resulting in scrapes on my nipples. Sometimes I think it is on purpose and sometimes just habit. I think it is on purpose...

    Thank you everyone for your advice. I think I will try going in our other bathroom and taking a shower in the bathtub so that DS can play with his toys. If that doesn't work, I will have to look...

    can't shower - need advice

    DS has been slowly getting more and more anxious when I leave him - even just to go in another room. He walks after me, and often hangs on my legs. I carry him around a lot. He was pretty clingy...

    Re: 1 year and question about milk

    Thanks everyone. I will try other options and then just let him drink water until I get home. He wakes 4-6 times a night so he probably gets enough milk in those night wakings to make it through...

    DS knows what I mean when I say "you wanna nurse?" He makes his "I wanna nurse" whimper and walks over to our spot to nurse. He also sometimes goes over to the boppy and lies down sideways on it and...

    My baby is over a year now. Even though I planned to stop at a year, I am still nursing. He just seems so small still and likes nursing so much, I don't have the heart to stop. Plus, I enjoy yhe...
