I'm starting to get nervous that my 12 mo is going to be an early weaner. He is just so distractable (yes I've read the 5 month article on kellymom a dozen times). He ALWAYS has been and doesn't ever nurse for "comfort". And he never "asks" for it unless we lie down in bed and then he starts whining.
We used to only be able to nurse in my bed but know he thinks the headboard is a jungle gym and keeps unlatching to climb it. He also comes off, sits up, leans over to nurse the other side, rolls around STILL latched, talks, smiles, etc. while nursing.
I'm hoping that this is just a phase. I can only relatch so many times.....he bites if I push it!
Please tell me this is a phase....I want to make it to 2 years! When he was a newborn he wouldn't stay latched on for more than 2 minutes at a time and I kept forcing him back on before I learned to just go with the flow. I am hoping I didn't give him a negative association with nursing! I really want to have the nursing relationship where he asks for it and says "ahh" after too!
