Hi, all. I didn't think I would be posting on this board anytime soon. I am preggo and have been BFing. After some complications, much crying, praying, research, and soul searching, I decided to wean my son all at once. It has been excruciatingly painful - physically and emotionally, but I know it is the best decision for me and my family. It was a week this morning since I stopped. I am no longer painfully engorged, but I still have plenty of milk. My son is 16 months old this week and we were nursing night and day. I am still making plenty of milk, feel fullness around the times we usually nurse, and leak (which I haven't done in months!) when he cries or naps or any time we would be usually nursing.
My question is, how long will it take this to stop? It seems like it is still teasing me because I still really want to nurse my son, but I can't. (I appreciate your good intentions, but that is not up for debate.) I wish it would hurry up so I can move on and accept the way things are. I know that it will all be worth it when I am holding my healthy newborn . . .
I've already tried cabbage. I've quit eating oatmeal. Any other suggestions?
Sorry this is so long. I guess it is a little bit of a vent, too. I know you guys will understand. Most of my friends and family think I am .
