I would like your ladies advice on a bfing issue that I am having. Around 2-3 in the morning my son will want to eat. So since we co-sleep I latch him on and go back to sleep. During that feeding he will fall back to sleep. After that feeding is when the issue starts....
He will sleep for awhile then get very restless and fuss slightly. It will wake me up because of how much he is moving around. I will try loving on him to get him back to sleep. I have tried the pacifer and even that doesn't work. The only thing that will settle him down is the nurse. I know that he is nursing as a comfort thing. He will do this about every hour to hour and a half until we get up at 8 or so.
Am I creating a monster by letting him use me as his pacifer? The other concern I have is I really want to start pumping to continue my freezer supply for when I have to go back to work, but when I get up I really don't have any milk to pump out. He has been sucking me dry since 3am. Plus my nipples are so sore. I know it isn't a growth spurt b/c it has been going on or a couple of weeks.
Sorry so long
