    I don't know, it just reminds me of how things went with her and Nora when she talks about it. I'm not sure if she had a weaning thread or not... she weaned Nora during pregnancy and she would go a week or so without nursing, and then nurse again and then one day she hadn't asked to nurse in a long time and Paige knew she was done.

    Oh, ok. Thanks. I was actually wondering when you call weaning. Like, when are they officially weaned. I was thinking that maybe if she hadn't nursed this weekend that maybe that would be it, but also, she DOES still ask to nurse but most of the time I just say no and she's ok with it So it's still on her mind.

    You're taking it slower than I did... I pretty much had to be DONE. I couldn't do it anymore. So, Lilah nursed a few days before Thanksgiving, I guess, and even though she asked to nurse again after that, we were done.

    ETA: She did nurse once after the baby came, but I don't really count that...

    Pretty much the only reason I agree to nurse on the weekend mornings is because I don't feel like dealing with her tantrums and waking DH up. So it's mostly out of laziness.

    That is kind of why I haven't bothered with night weaning. It's just easier to get her back to sleep nursing than to remind her the nummies went to sleep and she can nurse when Mr Sun comes out....then we talk about that 3 minutes and then she ends up nursing anyway.

    That's why I hadn't bothered with it either for a long time. It's just easier for everyone to nurse.

    I don't think this child is ever going to be weaned. I'm mentally preparing to deal with her wanting to nurse more when the baby comes. She nursed 2-3 times this weekend.

    I can see that!
    The only reason why we night-weaned was because my pg-bfing irritation was so high at night that I was very much OK with her complaints, as long as I didn't have to bf. Now the irritation is much less and I have to remind myself not to bf overnight lest we backslide :rolleyes Sometimes this night-weaning is high-maintenance!

    Katharine, I didn't know you had all that irritation! I thought that you loved BFing while pregnant because you don't complain about it as much as me I kinda was feeling bad about complaining about it all the time and not being such a great advocate. :0

    She, is isn't she!

    I'm feeling...I don't know. Well. I do not want to nurse her at all, but am not extremely irritated either because its 1x or 2x per week. I am pretty sure it's the contractions that make me not want to have anything to do with nursing because if she asks that's one of the first things I think about. She has not forgotten about milks though and she asks most days. But now when I tell her no, she doesn't usually freak out. Somehow, on her own, she came to the conclusion that after the baby comes out the milks wont hurt anymore and she can drink them. And quite honestly that scares me. Because she can be very demanding and very needy and I dont' feel like dealing with her tantrums when I'm trying to nurse the baby. I don't want her to want to nurse every time he does. she told me the other day "I miss ma-milks". So I guess I still feel conflicted too.
