I have a baby girl who just turned one the beginning of this month. She was nursing in the morning and before bed and a couple of times during the night (she sleeps with my husband and I). Recently, like in the past week or so she wakes up about every 1/2 hour in the night to nurse and won't be consoled until she does so. During the day she is wanting to nurse about every 2 hours. Since she is 1 now, she can definately "tell" me what she wants...comes to me, lifts up my shirt and says "eess, eess". I have two older daughters who were both breastfed...the first quit suddenly on her own at 11 months, the second weaned when she was 15 months. During both of their last few weeks of bfing they would only nurse before bed. They both took pacifiers and would wake in the night, pop the binky back in and go right back to sleep. (They were both co-sleepers also). I am just wondering why the sudden onset of frequent nursings and what should I do about it? Let it go and she'll eventually slow down again (this is wearing me out!) or try to get her to suck on a binky (she never has liked it much, no matter how hard I tried to get her to take one as an infant, now she will suck on it occassionaly, but more "just for fun" than for soothing) Any advice or info from experience with this type of thing would be greatly appreciated. I had planned on nursing her until between 15-18 months and this is really throwing me for a loop since I figured the last few months would be just before bed like my first two!
