So, I've been happily nursing on demand (and co-sleeping, so nursing several times through the night) for nearing 11 months, and it's been delightful in every way. But lately I'm noticing that it's feeling more... like a chore, I guess. He's always so distracted (the on-off-on-off is incredibly annoying and a bit painful), biting a lot more, kicking me in the groin at night, thrashing around, etc. I mean, this is generally a pretty mellow kid. It's just that I feel like the nursing is more of a wrestling match these days. Especially at night trying to get him to go down.
He's still totally into nursing, and so am I, so definitely not ready to throw in the towel. I guess I'm just disappointed that something that has been so great is less so these days.
