So, we've been signing with baby H for almost 6 months and have really started to see the fruit of it. He's kind of made up some of his own signs, but also does "more", "all done", and more recently "nurse".
I thought this was a great idea at first, but now instead of him eating 5 times a day for half an hour each like he used to, he's asking to nurse every half hour or so. Sometimes more...this kid is insane! Before I taught him how to sign, he would be perfectly content with nursing 5 times a day, but now I can barely function because he's constantly attached. CONSTANTLY.
Any other mama's have experience with this? What did you do?! I'm hoping that after a few days he'll settle down and that this new phase is just that...a phase.
He's going to be 1 next month (AHHH! I can't believe we've almost made it to a year!) and I'm considering starting to wean him (very, VERY slowly), but with this new development, I don't know if that will be very successful. Especially since he's pretty much still EBF (with the exception of a few meals a week IF I can get my act together...)
So...any thoughts? Thanks in advance!

I love Jesus. I wish I were a ballerina. I’m always cold. My wonderful husband and I are about as opposite as you can get. but I love him more than I could express. I don’t have the best memory in the world, but I can quote F.R.I.E.N.D.S at you all day long. My favorite color is blue.
