It looks like a lot of people are in the same situation I am!
I'm 14 weeks pregnant and have been trying to wean my 22 month old daughter for about 3 months now. We got down to only nap and night time feedings, and the night time feeding is pretty much an all night nursing session. I'm sick and exhausted from being pregnant and it's just not working anymore. I am sad that I dread nursing so much. She is my third child and I thought I knew what I was doing as a mom until she was born. From day 2 this baby has been INTENSE. Never let me put her down, EVER. Wanted to nurse constantly. Screamed like mad when I tried to put her in a bouncer or swing. Car rides were hell. She still doesn't like the car. Her attachment to me was so extreme that neither of her grandmas could hold her without her flipping out until she was 10 months old! Anyway, just a little background so you can imagine what it's like trying to wean her. So, we finally cut out the nap nursing about 3 weeks ago. Problem is she won't nap now. She wakes up at 8 AM and finally knocks out at around 11 PM. Life after 4 PM is pretty bad. I don't know what to do to get her to take a nap. She doesn't like the car so that’s not an option. She won’t lie down with me. I can tell she's tired because she gets so cranky but she just plain won't take a nap. I feel like we’ve tried everything. She will fall asleep at night but I’m guessing it’s only because she is physically and mentally exhausted (as am I!) but she wakes throughout the night to nurse still. I really did enjoy our breastfeeding relationship and bond but I’m done now, really, really done for sure. I don’t feel like I’m giving her what she really needs from nursing because I feel so negatively about it now. I’m just tired and worn out. I still try really hard to give her lots of love and hugs and mommy time all day. She also eats and drinks really well. Sooo, any advice for me? I’d really appreciate whatever I get!
