help, i am so exhausted. dd (16 mo) is nursing nonstop. i nursed her, we got out of bed. i changed her dipe, read her a book. i was preparing breakfast and she walked over to the computer chair calling milkies! milkies! and whining. which i where i am now. i nursed on both sides. she wouldnt let me put her down after that. she demanded milkies again and stuck her arm down my shirt. she's nursing again now, for the third time in a row?<br>
Okay, she finally let me take her off. I just don't know what to do, I am so exhausted. She nursed a LOT last night, and I think it's really starting to have an effect on my day.

DD gets into stages where she wants to nurse frequently and sometimes I find that it's because I'm too busy and not playing with her enough. By asking to nurse over and over and over she's showing me that I'm too distracted by other things and I need to focus on just her for a while.<br><br>
Teething, developmental milestones, and other factors contribute as well, but I just thought I'd share another point.<br><br>
We're actually going through a stage right now where she wants to switch sides constantly. Every few minutes I can deal with, but pleading "Sides??" every few seconds is a bit much! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue">
