Ds is 9 and a 1/2 months- and I am feeling really unahppy with how I am dealing with nurdsing him lately. It all started when he got his first 2 teeth ( he still only has 2 tho I think more are on the way)
We had some episodes of biting. I wrote about those on here.
The biting has stopped! So this is not a post about how to deal with biting.
But the problem is that ever since then, I am kind of nervous about nursing! I just can't relax and go with it like I did when he was really little- I tense up and when he is changing mouth postions I pop off a lot and think he is going to bit even tho he hasn't in a long time! So it sucks- for him relaly. I try to relax and nurse him as much and as long as I can.
It is always better at night nursings when we are both tires- he is more gentle and I am sleepy so more relaxed. But I just wish I could be calmer and more open with my general nursing- but I find myself reluctant to nurse him sometimes, and not enjoying it sometimes- and popping him off on the early side- and kind of getting through it more than relaxing into it.
I want to reclaim the relaxed flowing open nursing that I used to offer him- bu I jus keep tensing up! Any siggestions? this has been going on for like a month and I feel really bad for my ds about it- I mean, he is fine- he is great- but I wish could be mellower and easier about it.
