My son nursed every hour or so during the day. Recently, in the past 1-2 weeks, when we've been out and about he is able to go 2 hours. He has always nursed 7 plus times at night. And the early morning hours after 2 or so, he nurses every 45 minutes it seems.
But lately he has been acting like he is eating his last meal every time he nurses at night. Gulping, fast sucking, and crying for the other side then latching on before I'm even rolled over all the way.
Well last night he bit me HARD. My tank had slipped when I rolled, and was partially covering my breast, but I guess he latched on anyway then bit me trying to fix it. I started crying it hurt so bad. Of course he was crying too, very mad yet asleep, that he couldn't nurse. My husband rocked him for a while so I could calm down.
He's always been a frequent nurser day and night, but I feel like this is different- he is much more insistent at night than during the day.
Is this typical of the 11 month old range nursing? That they're learning to express themselves and it's just part of the gusto they do it with?
