Re: Won't nurse lying down anymore
Yes, my DS went through that. He still gets pretty wacky sometimes, using his feet to climb up my side and stand on his head while latched on, etc., but if it is bugging me I just break the latch and let him know I want him to lie down, then sort of drape an arm over his body lightly to encourage him to settle down and usually that works. If he's really being rambunctious (like kicking my bladder ), I call an end to the session and we try again a short time later, or we try a different position. I find that when he is really going wild, sitting on my lap to nurse helps him to be more still -- don't know why, maybe it reduces his fear that he will fall asleep, which he would usually like to avoid at any cost
Best of luck!
