Re: Toddler takes forever to nurse to sleep
with both PPs. My son had a spate of new words and sentences around 18 months. His canines started working through around 17 months too, and honestly they have been by far they worst teething experience to date. Because of all that, my son wanted to nurse constantly at 18 months. He would nurse, unlatch, and immediately sign for milk again. It was exhausting. Going out for long walks has always (at least since he started walking/running) helped wear him out so that he sleeps better. I wear him a lot in our Ergo, like PP suggested, when I needed to do things around the house as well as when we go out. I also give a dose of ibuprofen before bed which helps when teething is the issue.
My son started nursing a little less once all of his canines broke through.
