  • My 14 month old goes through days like that. I assume it's a growth spurt, teething, or some similar discomfort. I know it can be frustrating when you've got a hundred things to do and constantly have a baby attached but I try to remember they're only this little once and too soon they won't need me as much. I know I'll miss it.

    Do you have any kind of carrier, sling/wrap/etc. ? It lets me get some things done on the days where she won't be put down.

  • wow first off.I applaud you on how long you have breast fed her. and second has you tried feeding her real food? if she's eating that much it must mean she's not getting full, when do you plan on weaning her?

  • You CAN say no and offer her a sippy of milk. She's more likely using you for a bink then for nutriition.

  • Some one year olds won't drink milk fyi. Mine is 13 months also and won't eat anything for the most part. She still nurses and refuses cows milk.

  • why are you still nursing at 13mths? It is okay to give her regular WHOLE milk in a cup.
