She is now 17 months and finally starting to eat purees more consistantly and even swallowing afew bits of solids now as well YAY! But she still cosleeps and now has discovered nursing laying down beside me.....ACROBATIC nursing laying down beside me! She rolls over with my nipple in her mouth, goes perpendicular to my body figets and moves like my boob is made of rubber!!!! But the worst is that no matter where or how we nurse at bedtime, SHE DOESNT GO TO SLEEP ANYMORE!!!!!! WHAT happened!!!! thankfully her endoscopy showed no issues for reflux so I think if she has t o learn to sleep now she can do it....but can somebody tell me why boob is not working anymore????

Grrrr...I hate that acrobatic nursing! It drives me nutty! You do not have to stand for it, mama. http://www.kellymom.com/bf/older-baby/nursing-manners.html


The sleeping can be hard. Have you picked up Good Nights or the No Cry Sleep Solution? There might be good ideas there. Can DH try to get her to sleep? My dd will lay down with her Boppy pillow as long as one of us is with her. Perhaps that would work?
