My son is 18 months, still nursing... Probably more now than ever before. I know that it's completely safe to breastfeed during pregnancy (I'm now 14 weeks along), but it hurts SO much. I would have weaned him by now, but he just doesn't seem ready to wean. I finally got him weaned at night (which he did pretty easily). I was just too exhausted and he was nursing every 1-2 hours all night long. However, he wants to nurse all day now. He asks, I try to distract him or offer him something else to eat or drink... But it's just not working. He'll cry and cry and cry.
I'm really feeling like a terrible mother. At this point, I don't really even think I have any milk, but it's just so incredibly painful that I dread when he asks (which is often). He's never taken any sort of security object except the breast and I'm feeling so selfish for wanting to take that away.
Has anyone ever gone through this? I just don't know what to do.
