my DD is a year old. i know changes are happening and im trying to go with it. i just need some advice/reassurance on two things.. thoughts are welcome.. and appreciated
1. she started pinching and scratching me at night when she would bf. I think it might be because she may be waiting for milk to come in or maybe her teeth/gums were hurting. Now she has started to do it to me during the day.. i wonder if she is frustrated with me.. and has started hitting her father. She knows what ouch is, she says it when she does it. when she does it i move her hand and say "ouch that hurt mummy, gentle hands" then i show her how to be gentle. Not working
2. am i right in thinking that bm even at 1 year is supply and demand? well i guess i am worrying because she has started to refuse the boob sometimes. She does eat solids through the day and nurses 4 times on average at night. Anyway the last couple of times when she has got hurt she would normally bf but she has been refusing and even at night before bed when i would bf to sleep she doesnt ... i am worried she may be weaning? or this might be the start? if its true and she is ready then its ok (i just love the bonding time) .. any thoughts?
