I've been determined to nurse my son until he's at least 18 months old and so far it has not been a problem (except for some uncomfortable bites, but we're over that now). He was nursing about 4 times a day (night time is a different story)
Over the last few days though he has been increasing the amount of time he wants to nurse. It used to be we would get up in the morning and he would have a yogurt for breakfast and breastfeed and hour or so later. Instead, first thing in the morning he's reaching in my nightgown and pulling my breasts out himself! Plus, several times during the day he wants to nurse, reaching his hands inside my shirt if I don't "get it".
He was to the point where he would fall asleep (not in the crib but in my or DH's arms) without BFing, but now he's back to only falling asleep while nursing. He does not sleep through the night and usually wakes up, at which point I bring him into bed and BF him back to sleep. But now that's turning into several times a night.
I can't understand why all of a sudden he's increasing the amount of time he wants to nurse.
