Please help with any advise or personal experience. My daughter is 2yrs and 3months old and we have gone strong with breastfeeding. She only feeds at night to get to sleep or when she is sick or unsettled. She only wants Mom at night to put her down as she gets "boobie". Dad is a bit sad that she doesn't want him. But now i am going in on the 25th of this month for a hysterectomy and to remove tumors on my ovaries and my doc has said it's time to stop bf, he has given me a script to dry my milk up. I'm in two minds, as her paed, our gp and my gynae have all said time to stop, but she gets such comfort from it. Sometimes i still love it and other times it's not so nice as she bites a bit when falling off to sleep and makes me sore and it is cold now so half my body sticks out. How do i stop the night feeds. I read somewhere that they did 3 night time pictures and explained to a 3yr old that when the pictures are all down then it's no more feeding on Mommy, but will my little girl understand this. A friend also said to get her a special soft toy that is the "no more boobie" friend/toy. And she can form an attachment to this. Please help, i am running out of time to stop. The doc suggested i just take the meds in the hospital and come home with no more milk, but i feel like that won't be right as last year i was away for 2 nights and we thought she may just not want it when i got back . . . .but that was her first request "boobie pease mommy". So i don't want to be stuck with an upset child when i will be in pain and trying to recover. Therefore wanting to do it before.
