My DS is 31 months old. We have had a great nursing relationship for the most part although he has always nursed more often than I sometimes feel comfortable. He is not a great eater - very picky and often doesn't eat. He would rather nurse than eat. This is especially difficult for me in the evenings when he eats little to no dinner - he snacks on me all night. It is not uncommom for him to nurse 5 to 7 times a night. Sometimes I think he just uses it to get himself back to sleep (another habit I would like to see him break) but most of the time I think he is hungry so I allow it. Occasionally he will accept my refusal but only for a short time after which I give in so I can go back to sleep and not feel too guilty. Is anyone else having this issue? I love nursing him but it is hard to sustain a 39 pounder with breast milk.
