My son is 15 months old. I had him weaned during the day and was only nursing at night. Then the semester ended and now he wants to nurse all the time again. He will go and get his nursing pillow and try to drag it to me. He has gotten very very crabby when I wont nurse him. Last night was horrible he refused to sleep unless he was nursing. He screams bloody murder when I wont nurse him. At this point I know it is more of a comfort thing and I hate to take that away but I am exausted and want to get more than a few hours sleep at a time. I have tried the cry it out, its not for me. Today we made it the whole day not nursing(6am-8pm) but he threw a few fits. I nursed him after his bath and he fell asleep I tryed to lay him down and he woke up. I layed down with him on my bed and rubbed and patted his back he cried and tossed and turned and grabbed at my chest for about 40 min before he finally fell asleep. I know I am to blame since I always nursed him to sleep and he doesnt know how to cope by himself. I need some ideas on how to make this easier for both of us. He does not suck his thumb or take a binky.
