I feel a little guilty...
DS is not night-weaned although he has been down to only a few short feedings per night for a little while now (for the most part.) Last night he woke up and couldn't fall back asleep - but wanted to - so he just kept nursing and nursing and nursing, switching sides frequently. I was so annoyed. I have a sinus infection that is not improving with abx and I don't feel very well. I wanted to just sleep.
After @ 30 min, I finally got angry, pulled him off, put him on the bed next to me and said, "I am not doing this anymore!" and huffed off to the bathroom. He started crying and appeared in the bathroom doorway a minute later.
I carried him back to bed and nursed him for another 20 minutes or so until he FINALLY fell asleep.
I have started to feel very annoyed, almost angry, at night if his feedings aren't short and sweet. I feel guilty. I don't want to make him feel bad about nursing. Maybe I need to night-wean him even though he doesn't get any BM anymore while I'm at work?
