DS is almost 8 months old, and regularly goes to sleep by nursing. He also usually sleeps half the night through and then is on and off the boob for the rest of the night while sleeping. However, the past couple nights he's acted very strange. I lay in the bed nursing him to sleep, he's all fine and sleepy and about to roll over for bed when he kind of wakes up and starts crying, going for boob, half latching on, letting go, crying some more in a frustrated tone... It took me three hours tonight to get him down because he just worked himself up so much that he was wide awake several times. He did this during naps today as well and never actually got more than ten minutes in. Could there be something wrong with my milk? Could he be working on some sort of nursing strike? He is fine about bfing at certain times though, it seems like it is only the going to sleep nursing sessions that this happens. Plus last night from about 3 am he was awake for a couple hours, he was popping on and off the boob, playing with my nipples, just in general being very restless. I'm not used to this behavior, we usually cosleep wonderfully unless he's teething (and I don't see anything new trying to come through so I dont think that's it). Do any of you have any experience dealing with this? I feel horrible like my milk is not making him happy all of the sudden.
