OK, I am confused. My son is 12 months old and for the past month I have been slowly phasing out feedings. He sleeps all night and eats a lot of solids, so I think a lot of his nursings were/are for comfort.
I am only starting to wean him because I want to regulate my cycles more so I can conceive again. I haven't done any thing that has upset him. Don't offer, don't refuse has been my strategy. So far it has been very easy and stress free. He was down to once a day before bed.
Well, and here's my point (sorry I'm long winded ) A lot of my family has been sick the past week with colds and intestinal bugs so I kind of panicked and started to offer my son the breast a lot so he would get more anti-bodies. Well since I've done that he has started asking to nurse all the time! Today he nursed about 8 times. And he is becoming demanding, whining and pulling my shirt. He is also much more clingy. It's like he's regressing.
This is all within the span of one week mind you.
I will keep nursing him if he wants it so badly because I don't want to deprive him in order to conceive again. I just don't understand what changed so quickly. He went from never asking to wanting it all the time.
Any advice or wisdomis greatly appreciated!
