I don't want my boob to be a paci :(

My son will be 15 weeks old this Thursday . He's done great at breast feeding , only know he wants to be breast feed all the time . Even when nothing is coming out he just sucks on my breast. I tried to give him a paci and he doesn't like it . He likes to chew on his hands too.

I love breast feeding so much, but I really miss sleeping and I can't sleep good when he's sucking all night.. Is there anything else I can do?

Ill post a pic of how big he's getting ! He weighed almost 14 pounds at his last visit and his weight is in the high percentiles . I didn't see the other dr would told me to give formula . I saw my daughters new dr , she said I was doing great. He's also getting to big for me to carry in his pouch ! It kills my back

Sorry. I know what you're going through. My son stopped taking the pacifier at around 8 months and sleeps attached to me for most of the night. I was doing fine with it until I got pregnant. I have no advice for you though. During the day time I use a wrap or crappy infantino carrier. He sits completely upright and nurses, I never could figure out how to get him in the cradle position.

Omg that hair I love it!!! 

16 weeks (four months) is a major growth spurt.  I'm better the suckling is to bring in more milk.  This too shall pass. And then you'll miss it : )

Do NOT let him bite, no matter how cute it is. You have to give him the no bite message now, before he draws blood. See the post "When Babies Attack."

I'm afraid there really isn't a cure for the current phase, though. Your breast is not a pacifier. The pacifer is a breast replacement device. Lots of babies never take them.

Sleep? You do know that's a violation of the Mommy Contract? **grin** Seriously, drop that which is not needed for survival. Thats how you get your down time.

Oh I don't like the biting. He started doing it before he got teeth, and I would stop nursing him and give him a teether to chew on. That worked until his teeth came in, then I just stopped nursing him. Now when he bites he gets a warning and then gets put in time out for a minute. Lots of people have given me grief over time out at such a young age, but he was doing it to be funny. The kid would laugh after I yelled at him. Now he never bites more than once. In my defense, he basically got 6 teeth in a month, so the biting was really painful. He has abnormally strong jaws and sharp teeth. He eats apples, not apple slices, apples. He chewed through one of his silicone teethers.
