I'm still nursing my 16 month old. I took his pacifier away about a month ago. He kind of gave it up on his own though. Now he has been nursing a lot more and he's up at least every hour at night to nurse. It's wearing me out because I'm 7 weeks pregnant with my 2nd and I have morning sickness and I'm just plain exhausted all the time. I thought I did a good thing by giving up his paci. I'm at a loss. Any advice is appreciated!!

Taking the paci away was a good thing. He could just be nursing more often because he's getting less now that you're pregnant. He might also be having a growth spurt. Does he sleep in bed with you?

Yes, he sleeps with me.

You might need to transition him to his own bed then. Night weaning is definitely harder when they are right there! (on the other hand it's easier to sleep while he's nursing when he's right there)

I know that I could no longer handle the night nursing when I was pregnant. Here is a great article on night weaning a toddler:

I would work on nightweaning...poor guy is probably upset that your milk is or has changed to colostrum, my guy when through this too at this point in my pregnancy.

I hope I can figure something out. I am so worried about this new baby coming because if this is still going on I don't know what I'm going to do!
