Thanks for thinking of us. If he's nursing strongly, it's ok, but when he's just nursing slightly, it drives me crazy still. I think it's a difference in the way his tongue moves. I've been nursing him as long as I can manage to get him to sleep, then cuddling him when I can't take it anymore. Seems to wok well most nights. Most days he's not nursing at all during the day, so that makes me life easier. When he does, I usually limit him to a couple minutes on each side. And then he cuddles for a few minutes. At least he's usually not upset anymore about being limited. He hasn't really nursed during the night in a long time, unless he's having a really bad time.
Sending you "no molars" vibes for the next few weeks.
Somehow I think my dh would be less than impressed with 3+ years of nothing, too. lol
