    Default I need help setting limits

    I haven't been to these forums in a while, but I need help! Ellie is 19 months and wants to nurse constantly when we're home. She's also nursing a ton at night, but she's teething so I don't mind nursing since it usually puts her to sleep. I'm resenting the constant day nursing though. If I try to deter her from nursing when she wants it, she gets very upset and has a meltdown. Distraction doesn't seem to work. The only boundary I have right now is if she's too wiggly, she gets put down. I can't stand nursing while she's moving around.

    we started with no nursing out an about...
    then moved on to other feeds at home.
    When you start to limit be sure they can get a good feed before and after nap that helps.
    Don't offer don't refuse works well for some moms with babies that age.
