Well done for getting to 12 months!

Is it possible to send in OH to settle him in the night?

I could try that... but often DH doesn't hear him and if it's at 2/3am, my DH works and I don't so I feel bad making him get up.

Is he teething? We had nfs creep in again at this age with molars coming through, and then again a few months later with canines. I just went with it to be honest, I knew it was teeth making her uncomfortable and she settled so much faster with a quick feed. It was easy to wean again once teeth were through -my DH would go to her and it only took a few nights each time, so maybe you could do it over a weekend when DH doesn't have to work the next day.

Sounds good. I honestly can't tell if he's teething or not. He's really drooling but I can't get a proper look in his mouth. I've felt around with my fingers but can't really tell. He's waking regularly between 10-11pm and the only thing that settles him is a feed. Last night DH went in but he still wouldn't settle. I'm wondering if it's hunger? He's in the 97th percentile for height and weight so he's a big boy, and I did wean him from 4 feeds a day down to 2 (sometimes 3)...

How much other fluid is he drinking over the course of the day?  Just wondering if he's thirsty rather than hungry :-\

Hmmm....well, there is a growth spurt around12m, so it could be he is a bit peckish, I guess.

Hey guys :) I'm joining in here. C turned 1 last week and just as I thought he was going to wean, he has started to ask to nurse more often - I'm a very happy mummy.

I'll try and catch up over the weekend :)

Corey was at his dad's last night and when I got him home he had an oaty bar in his high chair while I unpacked his bag and when I lifted him out for a cuddle he started pulling at my top. I think the little monster missed his boobies! ;)

wow can't believe he is a year either kelly!

we have pretty much weaned (@19 months - she is almost 20 months). my MIL was in town a few weeks ago and got DD up every morning so i didn't nurse for 3 mornings in a row. it wasn't really intentional just kinda happened. every now and then (not daily) she will ask and i will let her but it is for a few seconds and then she is done. worked out well bc i sad about purposefully weaning her since she is prob my last.

however, now she seems to want her pacifier more. she used to only use at night but will go upstairs and get them out of her bed. im not sure how to handle that bc id rather get rid of those sooner than later! guess that's for another post though!

Hugs Heather, at least this way it was tearless.
