Nursing a 10mth old

my dd is getting a little crazy with nursing, she always is playful and likes to sit up and break off and wave at anyone walking past. Im getting to the point where I dont want to NIP unless she is sleepy or really needs it. Nursing necklaces dont really intrest her she would rather put her hands in my nose and mouth and pull my glasses off! I dont want to wean as I belive it should be child lead and she is a avid nurser still. Tell me this is a phase, my other dds where much calmer than her.

No advice, just sympthy. Going through the same thing here. I hear its a phase. Hopefully it will pass soon for all of us.

It is a phase... It does get better. Unfortunately for me, I'm right there with you with DS. DD got past it, though, and nursed till she was 27 months old.

Yeah! Just a phase... we are going through it right now. He bit me the other day and I am trying to not get an infection from it.

It is gives you an introduction into the world of the nursing toddler.

DS is doing this right now! I put myself away to type this out and now he is really mad! Off to a dark room with no distractions...

A couple of these articles on nursing an older baby are really good. I remember that around 8 or 9 months old, DJ got very distractable and the only place he would really nurse well was on my bed with the lights off! By then, he was old enough that he was eating other foods and drinking from a cup so I didn't feel like we *had* to NIP most of the time. If he asked while we were out and it was convenient, I'd let him know that he could do it as long as he behaved and did it right. If we were heading home soon or it was more convenient to do something else, then I'd try to distract/delay him and just wait. That always worked fine for us...if he really wanted booby, he'd stay focused and do it right. If other things were more interesting, he'd accept a cup or a brief delay. He wound up weaning himself around 19 months but I'm fairly certain he would have gone much longer if I had not been pregnant again.

Yep, my dd was very distractible at that age, too. I would try to be discreet in public, and she would pull the blanket away or sit up abruptly, etc. A quiet place and longer between feedings helped.

Re: Nursing a 10mth old

My older dd only did this around 14 months ( i was newly preggy too) and eventually weaned herself at 18 months. But dd#2 is doing it now at 7 months. Each time she does it i use her name and tell her if she does it 2more times shes done nursing for the time. And ive started pumping extra breastmilk here and there so that i have a supply in the freezer. Instead of fighting the battle of nursing in public, which for her is torture because shes hungry but desperately wants to watch EVERYTHING and EVERYONE passing by, i now just put the expressed breastmilk into a sippy cup. She can take a break from drinking, watch people and doesnt get sprayed in the eye with my streaming breastmilk lol. Seems to work fairly well for now. And its less frustrating for both of us!
