Weaning, not very good at it.
My second child loves nursing, but was too dependent on it to calm him down or to go to sleep. I finally 'weaned' him after we had a four day seperation in early April. Afterwards I told him that they don't work any more. He accepted that. For most of the time, just touching the "tangies" have helped him cope the weaning. However, sometime he throws wild tantrums. After fourty minutes of screaming, I ask him if he wants "tangies" (to nurse). That calms him right down. a few days ago he said the "tangies" dind't work (weren't producing milk), but tonight they are. Oh well, I'm not very good at weaning... althought my nights and early mornings have been more pleasantsx.
