I BF my oldest DD until she self weaned at 3 1/2. Maybe because I was pregnant and my milk was slowing and changing. But now my youngest DD is past 3 1/2 and showing no signs of weaning. I am getting tired of BF. I still love those quiet moments, but she never learned how to not nick me with her teeth and some days its just too much.
In October I will be leaving on my 1st trip without my youngest and the second since my 1st was born. I don't want to force her to wean, but I am worried that this trip will deplete my milk or the shock of me being gone and no BM for 10 days will scar her in some way. (Am I too attched or what!)
I have been able to wean her of the morning feedings. She's not happy, but getting resigned to it. I did this right before a trip to Disney becasue she said she would wean by then completely. So I started getting her ready for that by skippping the AM times. It wasn't too bad since I could distract her with breakfast. We still BF down for nap and night sleeping.
Has anyone had this situation before? Should I force weaning now or just let the trip come and hope my milk supply remains. I don't plan on pumping on this trip--I can't carry much luggage and it hurts me to pump way too much.
Thanks for any advice.
