Comfort nursing

My 3 month old refuses a pacifier like I can’t even put one in his mouth before he starts crying snd rejects it! I’ve cut nursing to sleep for naps by rocking him to sleep for naps. However night time sleep he sleeps with me seeing as I can’t get him to sleep on his own yet! But all he wants to do allll night is comfort nurse! And if he doesn’t he cries! My nipples can’t handle it anymore! I don’t know what to do anymore! I don’t want to force a pacifier if he doesn’t want it! Idk how to stop this.. it’s hard for me to tell sometimes if he’s only comfort nursing or if he’s eating at this point too but I know most the time it’s only comfort I woke up at 4 am and he was on my boob and I know he was eating at that point. But from 4am until 830 am when we woke up he was on my boob constantly that whole time! 😩help!

I feel you! My little one refuses bottles and pacifiers too. We just started using one of those penguin teether mitts and my baby loves it! It’s supposed to be nipple shaped 😂 https://www.amazon.com/Smily-Mia-Silicone-0-6Month-Replacement/dp/B08NQ169XF?th=1&psc=1

I'm reading this from the UK with my LO with my boob in his mouth (all night). Can't be normal and surely he must be full? Maybe I'm not producing enough milk ... I want to sleep 😴😭😭😭. Breastfeeding ain't for the weak ... I also bedshare and I think it's part of the problem. I just don't know how to stop bedsharing.

I’m here too. Hoping it’s a phase that runs it’s course quickly
