Hi everyone <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/smile.gif"> I need help. This is my second child and I've nursed both of my kids. My son was 2.5 yrs old when he weaned. My daughter is 21 months and I'm just exhausted!!!! She is a non stop nurser when ANYTHING is going on. A normal day will consist of requests every 30 min and all night long. When she's sick or uncomfortable from pooping, it's an all day event. She's been holding in her poop today and my nipples are RAW. Yes, I let her have them when she asks but I don't offer. I try food, drinks, going out, playing, you name it. I love her but can't live like this. She's a high need child. So when you say NO she doesn't let it go. She cried about her car seat from the day she was born and STILL screams at 21 months and is forward facing with a DVD player in a nice big carseat. I feel like the life is getting sucked out of me <img alt="greensad.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/greensad.gif"> Please don't judge. My son is autistic and when he gets home from school it's non stop with him at the same time. My daughter just wants me and not daddy. The nursing has to stop at this level though. Any loving advice would be appreciated <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/smile.gif">

<p>My DS went through this phase a couple of months ago. Now at 24 months he is much less demanding with nursing. There is hope!</p>

<p>I might be late to this post, but my 24 month old DS is the same way. I could have written this post. He has always been high needs, and he is still asking for "milk" 5-6 times a day or MORE! He never night weaned. He will sleep for long stretches but still wakes up about 3 times a night to nurse. I don't really want to wean him, and he really doesn't want to wean, but sometimes I'm just tired and touched out! Just wanted to let you know you aren't alone.<br>
