Im lost on what I should be doing. My Child wants to nurse all the time. it  could be from 10 from last to an hour. It's driving me nuts. Trying my best to keep cool and give my baby what she wants, but its to the point i no longer want to breastfeed anymore. Any advice on why she is acting this way or what I should do?

    My ds went through a phase of this at about the same age. It was beyond frustrating. But there were mo lars coming in and changes in routines and afyer a few weeks he settled down. I did start doing my best to distract him with a cup when I needed a break. Or I would nura e for a minute and use the time to engage him in a tickle fight instead which would distract him. He was wantong to nurse theough boredom a lot so if I found an activity to get him really into it would help. Hugs. I know its rough. I made it through and at 2 and 3 mos he still nurses but its only once or twice through the day and we just started night weening. Gl!

    What she said! You can set limits-+"we will nurse until..". Go for walks, pick up toys as a game, put clothes in a basket.

    All normal stuff. They will change up their frequency. If it's not a convenient time for you, then you can distract and delay.

    Yep! Setting limits usually helps moms through this phase. (((HUGS)))
