ds 4Hi, I wanted to introduce myself. I've two kids, one 4 and one 21 months and both nurse at night. The older one has alot of allergies and nurses two or three times a night. The younger one was blessed without the allergies and nurses just once. I know he wakes up because of allergies because it is more often when he is inflamed in some way. During the good times of the year he will typically go to just once a night (that is HEAVEN).
My solution to the night waking is to give him medicine for the allergies. It sometimes helps. I wish I could get him to see the chiropractor, but he's not comfortable with that idea yet and I don't want to make it something he fears or dislikes.
Also, another thing that has worked (sorry if you've heard this before) is that when I just want to get back to sleep and he keeps on and on and on... I tell him "we need to sleep now, so we're just going to nurse for another 60, 40 20... seconds and then we're done. He agrees and then I count very softly to whatever I think will do the trick, we stop and he rolls over and falls asleep. This doesn't work EVERY time, and if it doesn't, I try not to get upset, acknowledge that he needs more and count again for a little longer time. This usually does the trick and the two minutes that it takes to go through the exercise is much less tiring than the lingering nursing/sleeping interlude.
