Re: Overwhelmed and tired. I need to wean
Hi Leemami, I can identify with some of your feelings. My daughter is 19 m.o. She loves to nurse. I have felt very frustrated with her when she would not fall asleep nursing. I felt as though I had done my part and she wasn't holding up her end. I don't get so upset anymore because we've worked things out, although it did (and still does sometimes) take a little crying. But you know, i suspect making the decision to wean will not solve that right now. You will either do it quickly, with lots of crying, or progressively, with less crying, but taking a toll on you.
My recommendation is to take advantage of your girl's age and start setting some limits. Accept that she will not like them initially, but tell yourself that if you are persistent, she will come to accept the new rules. I'm sure you have some rules in your house. These will just be new ones.
