    Default irritating feeling while sleep nursing

    hi llladies,

    my lo is about to turn one
    my issue is that when he sleeps he needs to have the breast in his mouth and suck all night/all through a nap. its has not been an issue until this week, all the sudden i feel like it is so irritating, the feeling of him sucking constantly like that. i feel guilty feeling that and I am just dealing with the irritation.

    ive tried to remove him once he is asleep and it only works once in awhile. it is just such an uncomfortable feeling all the sudden it is making me crazy.

    i am not pregnant but it seems to me like what i have heard women describe when they are pregnant and nursing. ahhh! just wanted some feedback or ideas.

    I feel like this occasionally with A2 when she nurses long sessions during the night. I'm not sure why it is. But I do understand. Google the Pantley Pull Off. THat should help you get him to sleep without the sucking association. GOod luck! Sry for typos. Baby on my lap

    I don't have a solution but wanted to say I relate and hear you. The feeling of crawling the walks .

    Could he be latching on differently? I noticed periodically DD2's latch changes and suddenly it irritates me...almost like I am getting chapped by sandpaper! I just assume it's changes in her mouth as she gets bigger. Also, if she's nursing more often during the night, I will be more irritated or sensitive in the morning, I guess from having her drool and the milk on my nipples more than normal. Good luck, and hope it gets better!

    Are you about to start your period? I feel this way when I have PMS...

    Could be that you just finished your period and your boobies are getting "back to normal" Try the Pantley Pull Off or wait a week and see if it's still feeling the same
