Re: Nursing like a newborn again?
Oh gosh, it is so crazy when a toddler all of a sudden goes back in time to the newborn nursing pattern...! At least with a newborn you know to expect the nonstop nursing, but with a toddler it's a huge, out-of-the-blue surprise.
I'm sure that teething is at least in part to blame, and the nursing will taper off a lot when those teeth pop through. But if your LO just learned how to communicate his nursing needs, he could also be practicing that new skill. Both my girls ramped up their frequency a lot when they could suddenly ask to nurse.
I think you have a good plan- roll with it for bother couple weeks and if nothing changes, then reassess your needs and your toddler's needs and decide what you want to do about finding a happy medium.
This will pass, I promise!!!

Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"
