I can not figure out what is wrong with my little boy. He is 14 months old and just wants to nurse nurse nurse! My nipples are so sore and I have been up almost all night with him for the past week. He's fine and happy during the day....a little extra nursing and pretty clingy. I'm pretty sure he's not sick. He eats well, but maybe I'm not feeding him enough solids? He snacks all day and has three meals....but doesn't really have structured snacks.
He always is trying to pull my shirt down and many times when he is nursing he will change sides about 50 times if I let him. I want to put a stop to both of these things, when I tell him no he gets incredibly sad. Yesterday I gave in and let him nurse at pickup from daycare (usually he has no problem waiting until we get home).
Every time I unlatch him he freaks out. I've been giving him infant pain reliever - I'm not sure if teething is bothering him...but I can't see any teeth trying to make their way through at the moment. I need advice. We don't co-sleep normally, but I have been taking him to bed with me at times this week just to nurse and hopefully catch an hour or two of sleep. He doesn't sleep well in our bed and sleeps much better alone in his crib.
What can I do? I love nursing him but I need to do something to fix this.
