I thought we were getting better...then yesterday he nursed all day.  I kept telling him that there was nothing left...I was completely dry.  :)  Then last night, he wouldn't sleep until 10:30 (bedtime is 7:30) and he just nursed and nursed and nursed!  Weirdly enough, today I couldn't get him to nurse!!  I was actually engorged this evening and I was around him all day.  We've got teeth coming in still, but his mental leaps are obvious.  His word comprehension is growing by leaps and bounds the last two weeks.  I feel like he understands nearly everything I say to him now.  

 

Hang in there, mommas!  I like that we are all in this together.

And you! Hugs and patience!!!

Teething night here again last night... 2 incisors... so he was latched on most of the night and awake from 2:30 to 5am! Teething is pretty unbelievable! It feels so unfair! :-)

Unlike your LO right now LLQ1011, since this recent leap my DS has started trying to resist bedtime. It's very new for us as he nurses to sleep and was usually lulled to dreamland quite easily this way.

Oh, a nice saying for you all: "Hang in there mama- you can do it. Just remember what is most important to you at the end of the day"- k.m. Berggren

And TG for chocolate! :-)

Hi all, just getting back to you to share that ...in our case...it was a phase. He's still in the wars with teething but the intense clingy-ness during the day has passed. Thank you to all who gave support and advice at the time. Hope you and your LOs are well, :-) SM
