I am a stay home mother of a 9 month old little boy. He is about 28 lbs. and has always been a champ on the breast. He eats three solid meals a day with no known allergies as of yet. He has 6 teeth and counting. What's the trouble?
He wants to nurse/pacify on the breast all night long. He won't go to sleep or back to sleep without. He absolutely refuses. This hasn't been a problem/I just rolled along with it, but now he is biting and trying to stick his thumb in there simultaneously. I don't care if he wants to suck his thumb, but with the breast he ends up biting.
Here are the things my husband and I have tried:
last solid before breast milk
dim lights/bright lights
I have refused to allow him to cry really ever if I can do anything to help it, including just giving him my breast.
