Ok guys here is my problem......I have been breastfeeding joshua for 3 1/2 months, and he takes his bottle with cereal 3 times a day, and whenever we go somewhere, all other times, I breastfeed him. Well I have been giving his his bottle more and more because I am trying to ween him, and he does just fine, except when it s time to go down for the night. He screams and screams and screams if I don't give him my nipple. I try holding out and see if maybe he'll go to sleep anyways, but after 20 minutes I just can't help it and I give in. I have tried giving him a pacifier, bottle, teether, orajel, mylicon drops, nothing works!!! He just wants my nipple! And I want to break him of this habit but I don't know how! Any suggestions???

Also, you know how when your pregnant, your nipples get bigger and darker??? Well mine lightened up a lot already but will they get smaller again when I stoip breastfeeding??? I really hope so! Lol. Sorry sd I don't have that problem so I dunno. I'm sure it is just a little pigmentation defect.....No biggie probably.

My friend had that same problem with her son and she gave into him too until he spent the night with us one day and of course I couldnt breast feed him. So no nipple for him and she said after that he calmed down about it. I know it would be hard but just try and hold out on him. Good luck
