I have a 6 month old son and I want some advice on how I can train him as it is really difficult for me to keep up with the house work (stay at home mom) and also nurse the baby whenever he wants to (I am currently breastfeeding my son as he doesn't want to bottle feed and so I have to demand feed) and get no time to myself which is frustrating... I also can't get him to use the pacifier he just doesn't want it and starts to cry... I also want him to be able to sleep in his baby cot without waking up every half an hour or so for a feed.... PLEASE HELP!!

I hear where you are coming from. I also nurse and only on demand, and I also can't get my daughter to take a paci. It kinda sounds like he's got into the habbit using you as one (don't worry, I'm on the same boat.) It's hard to get him out of that habbit. But once you feel that he's no longer eating and just sucking, take him off. Maybe try giving him his thumb. I know it's a bad habbit, but it's better than him using you and it worked for me. Good luck!
