I love BF my son, it' created a wonderful bond between us and I enjoy our special time together. I've nursed him for 17 months but lately my breats are so sore from him. Lately when he nurses he gets easily distracted so when he does nurse during the day he doesn't stay latched on long, pops off to look around and latches again only to do what we call "baby yoga" while still on. It hurts and no matter what I've tried he just won't stay still.
He also tries to pull on my shirt to nurse while we're in public which is kind of embarassing to have my son lifting up my shirt for all to see. And lately he's started to bite... a lot. Not just when he's already latched but sometimes if I don't nurse him when he want's he will bite my nipple. And at night he wants to stay latched all night long (we co-sleep sometimes) and moves around a lot at night so I wake up super sore.
My breasts are constantly sore and I cringe everytime he latches on because he's so rough with him, I know he loves to nurse but I feel like it's time but I don't know where to start. I've tried to get him attached to a lovie but that hasn't worked, offering him a sippy instead doesn't distract him for long and he's never been interested in a paci. Any advice or tips would be helpful.
