night time fits

My son is 16 months old and is still doing the 5am feeding. I have no problem with this but he is starting to just want to suckle longer and longer and after about 30-45 min I'm over it and want to go back to sleep. If I don't, he throws a big time fit. He does the fit thing for my husband when I'm working (I work 2 nights a week), too. Should I cut out this feed all together? I origionally allowed this feed to continue to keep my milk supply up, but I don't think that's necessary anymore. Would he start sleeping better if he stopped expecting to eat at this time, or some 16ers still need this feed?

I suggest you just bring him into bed with you for this early fed and so both of you can sleep during it.

If you see this, leave this form field blank.
