Oh my goodness!!! My DD is 8 months old and extremely distractable when it comes to nursing. I think I touched on this subject briefly a few weeks ago in another posting. I've read that 8-12 months is a distractable phase, but it is so hard not to get frustrated. She'll nurse well as long as we're in our nursing glider in her dark, quite room. I'll offer on the couch or even in public and it is sort of like fighting her to nurse. She'll act interested and then pop off, pop on, pop off, pop on...Arrrrr! Anyway, I guess I'm really needing to hear some encouragement that this phase passes. I guess I'm afraid that this will lead to early weaning and I just don't want that at all. I have my heart set on nursing till she's 2. Is it normal to be this distracted? Oh, and i've tried nursing necklaces and they don't work, they just distract her even more.
