    Default Stopped trying to wean...

    I have decided to stop weaning. I just feel like I am doing more harm to dd2 than anything.

    She is teething, growing, and well I think it would be mentally better she has one constent in her life.

    My mom asked me last week what I wanted what I felt. I was taken back because I felt she was one of the pushing factors for me to wean. I know dh is really pushing the issue. I told my mom I want to teach her it is okay to nurse at home. I mean she only nurses when she wakes in the morning around 6amish, she wants a little "cuddle" for her morning nap, after lunch, and then around 7pmish. Now she still wakes off and on and gets a little extra nursing. I want and need her to nap, but she will either fight her sleep or cry herself to sleep....I feel so bad and feel she needs me.

    Anywho, she gets a cup throughout the day between nursing.

    Well here we go she is up and I have to go.

    Am I wrong for giving up the weaning thing? I kinda want to go beyond one just a goal thing.

    Ds ~ Xander 3yrs aka Xaxu
    Dd2 ~ Bailie 1yr aka Dede

    Still going 14months later.

    1yr goal and save $2200 average.

    It sounds like you re-assessed the situation and made a choice that is beneficial to everyone That's something I struggled with, feeling like "Oh I'm just giving in to what is easiest." But there is nothing wrong with choosing a path that you feel is best for your child, even if that differs from a plan you had already chose.

    I totally agree... there's nothing wrong with revaluating things when it comes to children... especailly somthing like this.
