I have finally come to the realization that the truth is neither my baby nor I am truly ready to wean yet. Due to my family's unacceptance of breastfeeding more than 6 months and continuous pressure for us to wean I led myself to believe that I was the one "wanting" to wean. Every time I would attempt to wean my child she would show much reluctance and extreme separation anxiety along with the many temper tantrums. I always blamed it on my own life stressors and certain life events causing the weaning trouble. But now I have come to the realization that I am in fact not 100% ready to let my baby go...I don't care what my family thinks this time is only but short period/stage in my child's life that I want to cherish and hopefully make a huge impact in the relationship my child and I have for the rest of our lives together. I say this because my own mother and I do not have the best of relationship that I wish my dd and I will have. And maybe bf for her first two years of life will possibly ensure a closer bond than that of my own mother's and mine. The only problem I face now is a lack of breastfeeding support and an immense amount of pressure to wean my child. Every time I try to nurse my child in front of my older sister she makes an insulting comment such as, "that is so disgusting!" or "Eww, gross" or "I thought you were going to wean her...your going to be weaning her till she’s in elementary school." The comments that hurt me the most is the remarks about how disgusting it is. I mean breastfeeding is suppose to be a beautiful thing that is precious in life and her comments while I am breastfeeding make me feel almost immoral in a sense and I hate that. Because I know what I am doing is not wrong but her reactions make me feel that it is. I don't know what to say to her because she seriously believes that everything that comes out of her mouth is correct. then when I try to talk this through with my alcoholic mother which is of no help anymore...I explain that after my sister moves out of our house (because we are both living with my mother right now) and both dd and my stress level goes down weaning will go much smoother. She ignores my conversation and nods her head in disbelief. Tomorrow is the LLL meeting...which I plan on attending and hopefully I don't forget (my memory is shot anymore) to find some support. Sorry for the ranting, I needed to get this out in the open since I have no one to confide in besides this forum. You all are such wonderful women and mothers that your advice and support means so much to me...I appreciate any remarks or words of support and comfort that you may have to offer. Thank you all for taking the time to read my post.
