    Unhappy almost...but not intentionally.....

    i will be the first one to stand up and admit that nursing has started to drive me batty at times because of the pregnancy. but, i have not denied dd completely rather i have just cut sessions short if it really starts to bother me. that's kinda the gist of how it's been going recently. i have no milk right now, so it's all for comfort anyway. so, last week when we were all sick she could only nurse for a couple seconds because she couldn't breathe and would become frustrated. this went on for days.
    it just occurred to me that she didn't ask to nurse at all today. it was a very sad recognition. i was actually beginning to come around to the idea of tandem nursing because she just didn't seem emotionally ready to stop like ds2 was. so i am sitting here right now having mixed emotions. the thought of having my breasts back to myself for a few weeks is appealing......but i don't think i am ready for this part of our relationship to be over.

    She might continue enough and then want to nurse again. Hard to say. Haylee went several months without nursing and then came back to it with a vengeance. I have no idea what will happen with Waylon. He still asks but is only allowed to nurse occasionally (3-4 times a day, down from 12-18 times a day when I was 12 weeks along). He doesn't nurse for long, though and I'm not sure the sucking is the same--it almost feels like he's nearly forgotten how. I almost didn't want to tandem again, but now that its almost a reality, I'm wishing we could. So we talk about it and I remind him there will be lots of milk once his sister is born, and they can share the nursies. And he seems excited about it, but we'll see.

    Anyway, I can give you advice to keep her interested, if you want. Or not. Let me know.

    thanks erin, i think i just needed to throw myself a mini pity party. preggo hormones are raging! i brought her into my bed this morning for a snuggle and she immediately asked for her Bee. so we nursed for a while. i have noticed the same thing that you have with Waylon, the sucking is different. maybe it's because there isn't actually any milk there

    That's how it went with Nora too. She just eventually stopped asking. But it went on for a few months where she'd nurse sporadically. to you and her. No matter how it happens I think it is always a hard transition.

    well, we managed to make it another year since i first posted this thread. now, KA is done. i am sad, but not as upset as i thought i would be. i think it is because SHE is ok with it. it was her decision. she says that there is no more milk in my boobies for her and that she is a big girl.
    so, our nursing relationship lasted 34 months, through a pregnancy, and on to tandem.
    i think that was a pretty good run!

    i wanted to thank ya'll for guiding us through our journey. ya'll are amazing!!
