Yesterday Lucas (he's 15 months, BTW) wanted to nurse. He had been awake for a bit and had lunch, consisting of a whole grilled cheese stuffed with veggies, a handful of chopped up grapes, and home made veggie fries. Not to mention all the water. So at this point, I could tell he wanted to nurse just for the heck of it.
I did not want to at all. He had been up the entire night before nursing and was really rough and bitey. I was sore and and was tired of being a chew toy. So I told him not right now and tried to distract him with colors and a coloring book. That was NOT what he wanted and he pitched a huge fit. He screamed at me and started to try to hit me. I told him that wasn't nice and sat on my bad where he couldn't get to me and let him throw his tantrum. 10 minutes later he was fine.
So did I do the right thing? I felt bad denying him, but like I said it wasn't to nurse down for a nap or anything. And I was so sore and uncomfortable. But he had a lot of toddler rage going on!
