this forum helped me through many early nursing struggles so I figured I'd reach out for help because I'm feeling lost again. I am 7 weeks pregnant and my milk has dried up almost completely. My son, who is 20 months old, still nurses to nap and sleep at night. Prior to becoming pregnant, he also nursed in the am but since my milk is drying up he has lost interest. While bedtime is great, he nurses and goes to sleep on his own, nap time has always been a struggle and he will only nap (once a day after lunch) if I nurse him completely to sleep (and sometimes he still wakes up after being laid down I the crib). Well, now that my milk is practically gone, he is having a hard time nursing to nap. Today, he asked me to "fix it" which broke my heart because I would keep nursing him thorough my pregnancy if he wanted, with or without milk. He refuses to lay down awake but he needs a nap because he is tired. I need help! How can I transition him to nap on his own when his entire life we have nursed to nap? I am a little heartbroken on this sudden change because it was unexpected. Any ideas or suggestions would be so greatly appreciated. Thanks so much!!
Ps I am now a stay at home mom- so it's just us, all day 5 days a week.
