Hi, all. My DS is 14 mos old and an avid nurser (day and night!) I love nursing him and had considered starting to wean him slowly after 18 months. We cosleep, too. Well, I found out this week I am pregnant and due early August, so I have a lot of tough decisions to make.
Nursing is how I comfort him when he is sick, scared, overwhelmed, cranky, etc. This may sound silly, but I don't know what to do if I don't nurse him. He spends 2 13-hour days a week without me when I work and my hubby says DS won't nap as well and is crankier because he doesn't have the "magic boobs!"
So when we are no longer nursing, will I be able to calm him down? I know he will survive without it, but so far, the boobs do seem to be "magic!"
