That's how he is lately! We coslept entirely up until he was 8 months.. At 8 months, I started rocking him and putting him in his crib the first part of the night, and bringing him to bed to cosleep the rest of the night when he woke up to nurse...

Since he's started doing this, I just put him back in the bed with me so that I can get some sleep, and I wake up to him still suckling! And he's asleep, suckling, until I pull my nipple out!

I don't mind him using me as a pacifier! But why the sudden increase???

Maybe it is teeth like PP said? But he's cute 6 teeth already and didn't comfort nurse to this extreme with those....
