    Still asking

    I weaned Grace on her 5th birthday over 6 months ago. It's not constant, but she still asks to nurse from time to time, and gets really sad that she can't. One day she was really sick and asking, so...

    Re: Weaning a 4 year old?

    Well, not as irrational as the fact that I have never given my DD any nuts because her father is so allergic to some of them. So I have no idea whether she is allergic or not. :o I swear every...

    Re: Weaning a 4 year old?

    Well, DD hasn't nursed since I last posted, so it's been 10 days. She's rarely asked. The last time she really truly asked, I told her the nums were tired, they'd worked a long time, and now they...

    Re: Weaning a 4 year old?

    Ack! I caved last night and nursed her. She was so upset and crying and saying how she missed nummies and she doesn't want to be a big girl, etc. It made her so happy to nurse, but it was so...

    Re: Weaning a 4 year old?

    I still haven't nursed her, but she asked last night and was upset, and again this morning. Part of me wants to just stick with weaning her, and part of me feels bad and wonders if I should come up...

    Well, she hasn't nursed since Thursday night. She wasn't happy about it Friday or Saturday night, but last night, when she asked and I said no, she just settled in for story and didn't ask again. ...

    Re: Weaning a 4 year old?

    Well, last night she agreed to try going to bed without nursing and she did fine. I had asked her why the plan had changed from being when she turned 5 to being 5 plus 3 days, and she just said...

    Re: What do they call it?

    Nummies or nums for short. I really wish now that she's older that I had encouraged her to just ask for milk. It ain't fooling anyone when your preschooler asks for nummies while out in public.

    Re: Weaning a 4 year old?

    Well, with her sad, but trying really hard to be a big girl and not cry face, she told me this morning she isn't ready to give up nummies and doesn't want to be a big girl if she can't have nums. It...

    Re: Anyone w/ 25 month old who nurses LO

    Mine nursed like that. She didn't cut back until around 3 1/2 when I finally insisted because I couldn't stand it anymore. Up until that point, she was content to sit and nurse all day long for...

    Re: Weaning a 4 year old?

    So tomorrow is her birthday, so it looks like today's the last day. I'm not sure it's going to go well. She doesn't seem quite ready. But we'll see. DH is kind of annoying me though. I told him I...

    Well, we're creeping up on her birthday. We've been working on preparing her to be done when she's 5, that she'll be a big girl, etc. She says she's ready, but I'm not sure if she really is. Based...

    Re: Alert Bbby?

    Re: Weaning a 4 year old?

    I understand that, but I can't change my feelings about it. I'm done. Her birthday is in 2 more months. I would like her to be absolutely finished by then. Which means we have some work in the...

    I've actually thought about pointing out to her that none of her friends nurse. I've tried that with my neice, but she's 3 years older, and DD has automatically upped her cut-off age everytime my...

    So last night I was asking DD when she would be done nursing completely and she said when she's 8. Uh, no sweetheart, mommy's about done. Anyway, I'm trying to encourage her toward being finished...

    Re: what is wrong with me???

    DD still tells me that she gets lots of milk when she's nursing, but I haven't felt a letdown in a year or two. It's been so long I don't even remember.

    ETA: And I never hear her swallowing...

    Re: Weaning

    :hug That is such a hard position to be in! What has helped with getting my DD to cut back is letting her know when she CAN nurse. Before if I would just say no, she'd have a fit, but once I...

    Re: Weaning

    That's right where I'm at with DD too. She'd love a party, but not enough to give up nursing for. We've managed to cut back to just bedtime and mornings (and naps on the few days she takes them)...
