    Default Back peddling

    Started weaning 12mo DS this week. He was nursing 4x per day- morning, after am nap, afer pm nap & before bed. We dropped after am nap session 5 days ago. He didn't even seem to notice.

    All wk long when he wakes up in afternon, he's miserable!! He'll nurse then sleep a little longer, then wakes up and cries, cries, cries. Today he woke at 5:30am and cried- screamed really for at least 10mins. He's been miserable all morning. I'm wondering if he's cranky from teething or getting a cold.

    Here's my question. When he woke from am nap he started getting cranky again so I just nursed him. That's the session we had dropped. Did I mess up the weaning process by doing this?? Where do I go from here?

    I would suggest that if he is ill or teething it might actually be best to put weaning on hold until he's feeling better.
