DD will be 17 months old next week. She's still very attached to nursing even though I have no milk left due to pregnancy. It's becoming more and more uncomfortable to me the farther my pregnancy progresses, and it's starting to make me resent nursing a lot. I don't want to feel this way. I've even toyed with the idea of weaning, though I know deep down I don't want to fully wean. The sessions we truly enjoy together I wouldn't miss for the world, but the way things have gotten the last month or so I feel like I have a toddler dictating what I do with my body, where and when, no questions asked. It has me really dreading tandem nursing.
My main issues are with how she asks (errr, demands) to be nursed and feeling like we have no boundaries during a nursing session. When she wants to nurse it's hands down the shirt, licking my chest, and crying if I don't "give in" within 30 seconds. When we do nurse, she's constantly slapping my chest, trying to twiddle the other side, kicking and squirming around, putting my face where she thinks it should go (which is actually kind of sweet - she likes me to have my head down on my shoulder looking at her - but it's not so sweet when she grabs my head and pushes it down when ever I try to look at anything else)
She's also wanting to nurse constantly, all day long. She has been sick, so hopefully that will settle down once she's totally better, but it's seriously got me freaking out over how I'm going to deal with this and a newborn.
I guess this is mostly just a vent. But I'd welcome any thoughts and/or advice from mamas who have BTDT. I'm getting really burned out on nursing, which isn't the best thing on earth when I've got a new baby coming in a little over 2 months time!
