DD turned 1 and turned into an all night nurser
I was just wondering how common this is with you ladies.

DD has been 1 for almost a month and for the past few weeks has been nursing like crazy at night. The past few days especially she wakes up every hour or every other hour to eat. In the past she'd sometimes wake up in the night and want me, but it's mainly for comfort. Now when she wakes up she's nursing so strong, like she hadn't eaten all day, and then she'll do that again the next hour, and the next. I feel like I have a newborn again and have been losing sleep. Maybe she is just going through a serious growth spurt? She eats 3 meals a day and snacks and nurses, so I'm pretty sure she's getting enough during the day.

Oh and normally she sleeps through the night and only nurses once or not at all until morning, so it is not like she's always been an all night nurser. Just wondering about other 1 year old LOs out there.

Mine started this about a month ago (around 10.5 months). It's such a pain. Cosleeping up to now has been so easy, but i am seriously considering night weaning now so my sleep isn't so disrupted... Maybe it's a phase?

I'm right there with you mama, with my 15 month old. I was just bragging a couple weeks ago about how she was nearly sleeping through the night, but now she is back up to nursing almost all night long. I'm thinking it's teeth...she hasn't gotten a new tooth since about 10 months, so I wonder if she's working on multiple teeth coming through at once.

No advice, just wanted to join in with the whining!

Yes! My 12mo is an if-I-unlatch-I'll-get-upset sleeper. It's most likely, in my case to do with teething. It's rough, but, I try and cherish the snuggles.
