Hi all, I am a SAHM to an almost 23 month old. I have always nursed on demand and still nurse him to sleep for every nap and at bedtime. He still wakes frequently to nurse at night. I don't think I'm producing much milk, it is primarily for comfort.
My problem is that my lo uses nursing to control. He asks for 'boov' up to 100 times a day (no exaggeration). Often he will nurse for a nanosecond then go play. As soon as I get up from the couch he asks for boov again. It's all about control. He wants me to sit on the couch and not go do anything. He has my full attention for most of the day. I'm not able to wash dishes or even eat for that matter. Anytime my attention is not directed at him he asks for boov. He also does this when we are out anywhere. Grocery store, or anywhere that he doesn't want to be. I am at my wits end. Any help would be appreciated.
