I don't think I can take it anymore. It is a constant fight when she nurses now. She always fights to try to hold my other boob, and holds the one she is nursing with her teeth, which hurts. I am constantly having to tell her to nurse nice, and at times, I have cut her sessions short because she's not being nice, but I admit, I probably don't do it as soon as I should. The only times she nurses now is when she wakes up and falls asleep, and now she is skipping nap as often, if not more often, than she takes one these days. And she has a bad habit of biting down once she hits that relaxed stage of sleep. Well, she did it just now, and I couldn't get her to let go! Her jaw is too strong, and I couldn't get my finger in her mouth to unlatch her, and she slept through me squealing, then yelling at her to unlatch! By the time she finally did, I was so upset I had to fight the urge to hit her. Anyway, it's just all these little things like this that add up to me being so sick of it and over it. I know it's her favorite thing in the whole world, but I am to the point that I hate it. And I'm starting to resent her for wanting/needing it so badly still. So how do I get her to stop at this age? I have always nursed her to sleep (besides in the car, and the occassional time she has fallen asleep in front of the tv), so how do I teach her to fall asleep without it? How do I get her to see that she doesn't need it anymore, and prevent it from being a traumatic event in her life? I've tried explaining to her how I feel about it, and that I don't like it anymore, but she always just gets upset and cries and says how much she loves it. And she nurses to so stinking long now when she does. She went from being a 10 minute nurser as a baby to a 45 minute nurser now! I seriously sit and fantasize about giving her a pacifier again, finding something to dry up my milk (are there teas that will do that?), anything, just to get her to stop. She may not be ready yet, but I am. I don't think I can take much more. Any ideas?
