Ok, so Eden is 21 months old and nursing about 2-3 times a day on the weekdays and up to 8 on the weekends. I love that my toddler thinks my bub bubs are the greatest thing in the world, but i have to admit, i'm just getting tired of having her hang on me. It seems like her latch is perpetually lazy, and with a mouth full of teeth i can't just grin a bear it anymore. My boobs have been off limits to DF for 21 months b/c i can't take being groped by 2 people everyday...i'm just not gettign those same warm fuzzy feelings i used to get. I've cut her down and will even refuse to nurse, and she handles it pretty well for the most part (plus i can reason with her, "bub bubs are empty, you drank it all"...and she understands), but i'm finding myself staring at the clock cringing while she's nursing and i can't stand it for more than a few minutes anymore.
I've taken an couple weekend trips and most recently a 4 day trip where i didn't even have to pump, so i know i'm not producing much (she did fine by the way, although on day 3 of my being gone Eden demanded to her nana "Nana, bra off now. want bub bub" when they were changing into bathing suits...)
So i guess my question is this, how do you let nursing go with out feeling guilty? I know WHO says 2 years, and as long as both mom and baby are willing thereafter, but i feel like i should be willing to as long as she is, or i'm somehow cheating her.
I don't want to cringe when i think about nursing or have bad memories of such a beautiful nursing relationship, but i don't want to stop just b/c i'm annoyed, but i'm getting REALLY annoyed. I want my nipples back. Does that make sense?
Ugh, any adivce or input would be greatly appreciated.
