Help! I am a first time mother of a 13 month old who has never taken a bottle, only breast-fed. Currently, we BF first thing in the morning, right before he takes his nap, and right before bed. He eats solids the rest of the day.
He always falls asleep at the breast (except for his morning feeding) and I don't know how I'm going to get him to sleep once we stop nursing. Not sure how long I will continue to nurse, we're just playing by ear. My goal was one year (we made it!) but as long as he still wants to, I am all for it - knowing how beneficial extended breast-feeding is for him. I'm with him all the time anyway, I might as well BF as long as I can.
However, he has got more teeth lately and they are starting to rub on my nipples when he nurses (and he's bit a few times) and that hurts so I don't know if I can continue for much longer, and it worries me in that I don't know how he'll get to sleep without Breast-feeding to sleep.
I just purchased the book "No Cry Sleep Solution", as I heard it is good, so hopefully that will have some ideas, but wondering if you mom's out there may have some advice. FYI I know I cannot do the 'cry it out' method, just too hard on baby...and mom. Advice please Thanks much
