My daughter and I have had a bumpy road in our breastfeeding experience. She came 6 weeks early, and getting her from bottle to breast took MONTHS. And so, so much stress. It was literally the HARDEST thing I have ever done; It took more patience than I ever knew I had. I would like to say that it has been a wonderful (which, in many aspects it has been) experience, but I am at my wit's end right now. Just a few months after she started comfortably nursing, I began having trouble with my kidneys. I've stuck it out, and postponed tests just to give her the nutrition she needs. Now, at 14 months, she is incredibly emotionally attached. She still primarily nurses. She still nurses about 3 times a night. She's not all that interested in solids yet. She won't take a bottle or cup. I don't know what to do. I didn't want this to end so abruptly, and traumatically. I truly believe in baby led weaning, but my body just needs a break- I'm so run down. Please- advice, tips, experience- how can I get my little one weaned as quickly (and as painlessly) as possible? Are there things I can do to decrease my supply? So maybe she'll be less interested? My mother-in-law says that I can just leave my little one with her for a day, and she'll try offering the bottle. I've heard this referred to as a "weaning vacation". She's never been babysat though, and I really don't want to traumatize her. I have a feeling that there isn't an easy way out of this situation.
