please don't get mad at me moms...

So James was weened a few months ago, then he spent one night away from David and I (we got home at like 3 am from a party) according to David's mom, James fell asleep fine but then she woke up when James started puking in bed. So now the only way James will fall back asleep some nights is to nurse from me. I know he's 2 years old and most moms are done nursing by then. Any advice helps!!

thanks for the advice. Ever since James getting sick while sleeping, his sleep cycle has been screwed up. It doesn't help that he has a hard time breathing out his nose while sleeping either. I think nursing has just been a comfort for him lately.

    Why should anybody get mad at you for that?

    WHO recommends nursing until age 5, worldwide that's the average weaning age.

    It does sound like he just wants the comfort, but in the end, it's up to you. Do you want to stop? If you do, then slowly wean him off again.

    I've been told I'm a bad mother because I still nurse James at night occasionally.

    *eye roll* How long you nurse your child is not anybody's business. While I do think nursing them longer just gives them more health benefits, I personally have a hard time of it after a year and applaud anybody who makes it longer. It's a personal choice between you, your spouse and your baby.

      Its completely natural for James to nurse back to sleep, its more about comfort for him then anything. Don't beat yourself up about it. If your trying to cut out the night feeding try to cuddle and sway until he doses back to sleep or just half nurse to calm him then cuddle, it'll work out. I plan on naturally weaning, we will nurse until its no longer necessary.
