  1. Desperate: 3-Yr.-Old ADDICTED to my Breasts

    I am so ready to stop BF completely, but my daughter, who is 3, is so attached to my breasts that she won't stop BF and patting my breasts. We finally weaned off of morning feedings and now only BF...

    I am my 2-yr-old's paci

    Olive will be 2 in two weeks. We have cut out all breastfeeding during most of the day, but around 4pm she demands "nurse" and if I say no she freaks out. We're still night-night nursing (we rock in...
  3. Re: When don't offer don't refuse isn't working

    You're not a monster. Quite the opposite. I'd say at this point it's more important for your babies to have a sane mommie than to continue BFing both. There's a reason you're feeling this way --...
  4. Re: 28 months still going and then came 29

    When I get sad thinking we will be finished one day, I remember that the things BFing has given her -- no matter when we finish -- are things she will take with her for the rest of her life. A sense...
  5. Re: Morning feed weaning/daddy's help not an option

    That is what we do. But it is a toss-and-turn situation that bears little sleep if any. She wakes anywhere between 5 and 6am, I go get her and bring her to my bed, and we nurse. some mornings she's...
  6. Re: Morning feed weaning/daddy's help not an option

    We went back to the 6am feeding this morning. I think she needs it and I didn't really want to stop it now anyway since after she feeds first thing, we fall back asleep in my bed. and I need that...
  7. Morning feed weaning/daddy's help not an option

    Over the last month, we have successfully weaned from all daytime BFings except for first thing in the morning. For the last two mornings, however, I asked my husband not to bring her to me in the...
  8. Re: I kinda just want to talk this out..........

    You do deserve a break, some real sleep, and a chance to refill your well (and I don't mean your boobs :lol). I have recently gone through a similar situation with DD. we are still having a hard...

    Cold turkey vs. gradual

    Well. LO has been underweight for last two doc visits, so doc told me yesterday that she is snaking too much on the breast and that it would be best to quit cold turkey. I decided to give it a shot...

    Re: Help! 18-MO Absolutely clingy

    Well, it is strictly because of direct observation: whenever I get my period, she gets clingy and fusses at the breast. That's the only time she's done it, and she's done it every time. Soon as...

    Help! 18-MO Absolutely clingy

    I don't produce much milk anymore. I've now had my fifth period since i had her on Oct. 19, 2007. In the mornings, she breastfeeds and actually gets a healthy amount of milk. But the rest of the day...

    Re: Help with weaning!!!!

    I am in exactly the same position. I love holding her in the mornings and at night-night time, but I am burnt out on the nursing. She is 16.5 mos old.

    Re: Family Criticism

    We are still BFing with 2 weeks to go until 15 mos. I get some sidewise glances from not only my own mom but also some of my own friends. I don't give a darn tho. Early on I was afraid I'd get...

    Re: Very gassy baby

    Yes! Lay her on her back and pump her little legs as if she's riding a bicycle. The instructions I used said to pump slowly and speed up (but not too fast) and then reverse going slwer and slower....
  16. Unlatches, grabs, and won't let go

    OK. This has been going on for months now. I haven't made a big deal out of it because I thought it might be one of those things she outgrows esp. if I don't act as if it's a big deal, like an...

    Safe to donate Medela Pump?

    Re: Emotional Wreck

    I know how you feel. Sometimes I wonder if something is wrong with me, if I'm some scary controlling mom who'll never let her go out on a date :lol The hormones make us feel so freaked OUT at times....

    Re: Anxiety/weaning/thoughts

    Thanks for the encouragement ladies. My family thinks I'm crazy (in lots of ways), and sometimes I actually listen to them, but this is one case where it's between me & Olive and no one else.

    Anxiety/weaning/thoughts

    I had been doing child-led weaning, but I am not sure she's ready. Maybe I read her signs wrong, or maybe she was just going through a phase where she didn't want to BF as much. Over the last few...
  22. Is this a weaning thing or what?

    For the last few weeks, LO will nurse on one nipple and hold the other one in her fingers. what's she doing? It doesn't really bother me until she starts pinching and it hurts. It also bothers me...

    Re: Are we weaning?

    I totally agree with the diagnosis. I have had depression for around 15 years. I had it licked with a combo of strategies I learned through cognitive therapy and low dosage of an anti-depressant. i...

    Going to the doc this morning to discuss feeble cognition, mood swings, lethargy, etc. plus, since I'm an older mom (46) I may be suffering from weaning hormonal shifts AND perimenopause. YIKES! What...
