It very well could be. Does Kevin have any teeth yet? Maybe he is working on those? IME they nurse more when they aren't feeling well- especially when teething.

Oh, and I don't mean to imply that he's probably sick- but you know about growth spurts so I was just trying to give another possibility. Click here to enlarge

Thanks June - no, no teeth yet! I keep watching for 'em, but I'm not seeing any. I'm kinda glad b/c he's getting so big in other ways Click here to enlarge - he tried to get up on his knees today. Thanks for the other scenario, I hadn't considered that... we're still fighting thrush, so could that be bothering him? Or does that only bother while nursing usually? I think I need to find some of that violet stuff (what's the first part of the name of it lol) b/c I dont' think the Nystatin is working, we're half way through the bottle. *sigh*

Genetian Violet, I think. I've never used it and I don't have any experience w/ thrush *crosses fingers* so i'm not sure if that could be the culprit either.

Never heard of anyone's nipples actually falling off, if they do be sure to let someone know - they could probably use you for medical research or something Click here to enlarge


Seriously, probably is a growth spurt. I think they also nurse a lot when they are getting ready to reach a new milestone - sounds like he might be there too.
