I'm 8wks pregnant and still feeding 13mo DS. He'll happily eat food - and drink from a cup when I'm not around (in nursery or with DP) but when I am around it's a different story. He is still demand fed - he is fed to sleep and back to sleep when he wakes also.
The last two weeks my nipples (particularly the left) are sheer agony when he feeds. Around 01:30-04:30 it's like torture! When I do refuse he's a nightmare and won't stop crying so this has been distressing for us all through the night in our bed but I'm really struggling with the pain.
Does this sound normal for the start of pregnancy or do you think it may be something more sinister (thrush?)? Any ideas how long it could last if it is symptomatic?
Should I wean him completely now as I don't think I have the energy to carry on . I'd really appreciate some similar stories!
DS was 20 months when I got pg again, but he was only feeding first thing in the morning. It was really uncomfortable, sometimes painful, for first 12 weeks or so. It then got better, but he did self-wean (co-incided with him sleeping past 5am) and I think my milk supply had dropped a lot.
