DS (almost 21 months) is down for a nap, and I'm almost crying right now because I just feel so done with nursing. He was sick last weekend, so he wanted to nurse, literally, all day long (and night, too). And that's just continued into this week...all day, he's just constantly doing the nursing sign...I mean sometimes nursing for 45 minutes to an hour at a time, other times only for a few minutes but asking a few times an hour. I am exhausted and totally touched out. Last night, he was warm again (not a high fever, but definitely over 100 temp), so he was up a bunch and wouldn't be soothed at all by DH. Today, all morning long all he wanted to do was nurse. I finally had had it and started telling him, "no." I had tried everything to distract him when he kept asking -- reading, music, toys...he just kept crying and asking to nurse. He finally went down for a nap after 30 minutes of me just rubbing his back and singing to him.
He just woke up and is sitting on my lap nursing while I type. I really need some support and advice. I don't want to wean but I need to feel comfortable putting restrictions on his nursing because I can't go on like this.
