I have an almost 3 year old son that is still nursing. I work full time and he drinks water, juice , tea at the sitter's. Immediately when we get home after work he wants to nurse before I can start dinner and I enjoy the snuggle time after being away for 9 hours. He sleeps in bed with my husband and I and nurses before he rolls over and goes to sleep. I honestly couldn't tell you how many times he.nurses in a night, although I think it isn't until about 4 am that he wakes up and nurses for a few minutes and then falls back asleep. He eats fairly well and does not need the extra calories at this time, he weighs about 50 lbs and is 3 ft 3 inches tall....on my days off it is all he wants to do all day long. He demands that I sit on the couch or lay on the bed with him so that he can have milk. I try to play games with him or play with his kitchen, army guys, etc but after a few minutes he is crying for milk again. I get so frustrated sometimes because I want us to have quality time together, not just nursing, and I have laundry and dishes to do, too. I tried to deny him an hour ago and he cried and carried on telling me that I was making him sad..that was devastating to me because one of the main reasons that nursing has been so important to me is because of the bond we have, the sense of security that he has. I never want to make him sad. I just thought he would have begun to wean himself by now. I need help.
