Sorry I'm not on here as much lately, I check in briefly when I can but I've been super busy.
I'm in desparate need of some support or advice or just ears to listen/shoulders to cry on.
Gavin is 19 months now and I am soooo fed up with nursing him. There are times when I desparately want him to wean.
He nurses in the morning and before bed. On weekends sometimes at nap time.
But lately he's been nursing all night long and it's driving me up the wall. At first it's fine but after a half hour it makes me want to scratch my nipples off it's so irritating. It doesn't hurt. It just gets up my spine. And he just wants to stay on for hours. I've tried just taking him off after that point and it always results in screaming and tantrums which let me tell you are hard to deal with at 2 am when you've been sleeping for a while.
He has four molars coming in right now. It's been WEEKS already that he's been working on them. I'm trying so hard to be sympathetic of that but it's becoming really really hard.
I want to night wean him or find a way to refuse to nurse him past his bedtime nurse but he's teething and I haven't found any other way to get him back to sleep when he wakes. He just screams and screams. I keep telling myself he'll go back to morning and bedtime once the teeth are in. But then there are always more teeth to come.
I'm having a really hard time with this.
