weaning 28 month old with a 1 month old
Hey ladies... I never thought I would be here, but I guess it's time. I am very pleased with how long we have nursed and I am very torn at times on weaning. DS1 has no real interest in weaning. We are down to only mornings and nursing to sleep at nap time (I am not back to work so that is only weekends). DS asks to nurse at times still and we use limits of only in the morning, and then distract. THe problem comes in that we co-sleep, so DS2 who is 7 weeks will be nursing and DS1 will wake up and get upset because he is nursing and he wants to. This is usually around 3:30 in the morning or so.
I am not sure if I am doing this right. It breaks my heart to tell him no, but I know if I go back on some of the limits that have been set it will just makes things harder.
I am weaning because I just don't want to nurse 2. And I am getting a lot of pressure from DH to wean and although I have told him that bfing is up to DS and I - he makes comments to DS that I feel will be more hurtful than ending bfing. Honestly, with having a newbie, it's hard for me to find the time to nurse the 7 week old and nurse the 2 yr old and still get things done in the house that can't wait- like dinner.
I might just need support, I'm not sure. I am just having a hard time emotionally making this transition and finding the right things to say to my 2 yr old when he looks heart-broken.
