My son (21 months) has recently had upsets with teething the past week and a cold, which pretty much comes hand in hand when he his teething.
He feeds through the night (more recently for the reasons above I guess) however getting him to sleep is the problem.
At nap time and bed time in the evening I can usual gauge when he is ready for bed and he happily lies down and we feed, until he is asleep. Recently however he is almost fighting off the breast when we lie down together at night time and nap time during the day. He is getting really upset and I know if he fed it would calm him but he does not want to and almost when he is at the point of exhaustion will he comfort himself to sleep on the breast. It is really upsetting for me to see him like this as I feel one of the beauties of breastfeeding is that before they get to the point of upset you can comfort them.
I am not sure if he is self-weaning from these feeds and I am forcing him to feed, if so then any advise on getting a toddler to sleep without the breast will be most welcome!
