Re: How will I survive Child-Led Weaning?
Aren't hormones the worst?! I know what you mean by those days when you're not nursing as much, it's hard. Then when you get the chance to sit down (or lay down) to nurse it's such a relief. Sometimes I wonder who enjoys nursing more, me or DS.
I've recently gone off Zoloft, as of about a month ago... and I had to do some major adjustments because I felt the same way. Just really up and down with how toddler nursing goes, some days a lot and some days not as much. My hormones were whacky on the weekends when DF is home and DS distracted enough to not nurse a lot.
For me, I am really good about my diet- lots of lean proteins and leafy greens. I get out in the sunlight every day. I take 2 fish oil caps, 1 multi vit, and 100 MG B6. The biggest thing is that I also exercise every other day and stick to it. I jog, lift free weights at home, and on my 'days off' from working out I take long walks with DS and my dogs. When you exercise, I can't explain it.. but your mind somehow gets past the 'down' and hormonal things you're feeling. You know that 'ahhhh relief' feeling you get when you nurse? The same thing happens to me when I exercise, even when I'm just going for a long walk.
I hope that helps a bit, that's what is working for me!!!!
How long have you been on Zoloft? I wonder if your dose needs adjusting? I was really sensitive to that and found 50 MG the perfect amount. I was actually on 100 MG every day but realized I felt way better on a lower dose.
