My 21 month old is nursing when I get home from work in the evenings and to go to sleep and during the night at least once. I nursed my oldest DS until 23 months and had to wean due to preterm labor issues during my pregnancy with DS2. It was a very abrupt weaning that neither of us were ready for, so I was hoping this time would go smoother and I would do completely self-led weaning with DS2. Only problem is, he is the worst nurser ever! He has to pull my hair (hard, he always pulls out fistfulls), dig his nails into my chest, bite, hit my chest with his fist if the milk isn't coming fast enough, etc etc etc. And if I try to keep my hair away from him or hold his hand back, he has a complete meltdown. I've tried to end the nursing session right when this happens, firmly telling him no, but he still keeps doing it every single time. He also sucks so hard when there's no milk and it just hurts so bad. It's gotten to where I dread nursing him and want to wean, but he definitely doesn't appear to be ready. I just don't know how to get him to be gentle with me. Any tips for dealing with this behavior? I hate to force a wean, but it is getting so hard for me.
