Colby is 22 months old and he is the same!
He is fine while we are out and about but if we are home or somewhere I can sit down, he's there bfolder Laughing
He still wakes often in the night too and 9 times out of 10 won't settle again without milk.
Brody was never like this Surprised
I don't mind as such but he just won't settle for anyone else at all which can sometimes be a problem!

Although if im not here she will be fine and quite happily just go to sleep!

If im here its.. "booooby"

I didn't experience any of this last time, Olivia was very much interested in everything else! plus we stopped at 13 months so all new for me.

Awww bless her!
I wish Colby would sleep. I have to lay with him until he drops off. He is on and off the boob and uses them as a comforter too (tweaking the nips). I have tried allsorts to try and stop him but it's the only way he will go to sleep affraid Oooh it's hard work

In the day he actually tries to yank them out of my top and gets angry if I have to say no. Neutral
Sorry I've started a little rant there Embarassed

He shouts booob too Laughing He talks really well but still can't say milk (it sounds like muck when he tries ) Laughing so he usually just signs it or says boob or 'this one' lol! Laughing

Razz ha ha bless!!!

Well we are still co sleeping and she comes up when we go bed (goes to sleep down stairs on our sofa bed after boooooby Embarassed )

She tweaks too! while feeding when shes half asleep ( I hate it ) and gets in a mood if I put my hand there to stop her!

She is sleeping a lot better at night now though, going from say 9 pm till 12 and then off until at least 5am lately


During the day however this is different, but hey im sure she needs it I love you

Awww with the tweaking they seem very similar Laughing It drives me mad lol!

That's brilliant that she's getting better at night. cheers

Colby is in with me too and I'm pretty sure I'm waking him sometimes as our bed is soooo creaky!
He keeps trying to go climb in Brody's bed at bed time though so I'm wondering if he is hinting he wants his own bed Laughing We are about to start decorating the ig room for Brody though so soon enough he will have his own room so he can choose where to sleep Very Happy

Hi
My DD is 22 months and has recently started to feed a bit less, especially at night. When she wakes (we are co-sleeping) and wants a wee nurse back to sleep I try shushing her back to sleep or sing a quiet song and I've found she mostly falls back to sleep!!
At about 5/6am I do give her a feed, coz I really don't want her waking that early. (lazy mummy LOL ).
She also loves to twiddle the other nipple while feeding and she gets sooo cross if I try to stop her. Rolling Eyes
Caroline xoxo

Razz Aww another twiddler!

I hope Lottie starts to feed a little less often, especialy during the day as it can be a bit of a pain when I need to do things.

Jools I tried putting Lottie in with Olivia a few months back, but they just played up and never went to sleep

So soon scrapped that idea!

He he !!!

Well I am going to try again when Lottie is 2, Olivia doesn't sleep well anyway (because she wants to co sleep as Lottie does) so I think the opposite will happen once they are settled and eventually sleep better (fingers crossed!)

My nephew is 20 months old and still feeds like a newborn! My sister is getting a little sick of it, though and is trying to cut down! Unfortunately for her my nephew seems to be the boss in the nursing relationship and isn't having any of it! Laughing
