Re: not happy with his nursing habits

I agree with working on naps/daytime nursing first. I'm having a similar issue with DS who's the same age, and I've tired limiting nursing at night and that is so hard because I just want to sleep and it feels easier to just nurse than do anything else. That said, I read somewhere that sometimes it is okay just to say no. If what you are doing isn't working, you've got to change something. DS has a tantrum sometimes if I do, but sometimes I say no and can distract him with something else. Granted we haven't been very successful with anything at night yet, but some days I can get him to not nurse the majority of the day by distraction and other food (because he's hungry).
