I took advantage of a 10 day trip when my daughter was 2.5 to wean her. The trip went fine, By the time i came back i had little production and my daughter seemed uninterested in the breast, this was back in July. a few days after I came back she started asking for it.
now mind you my husband was the one that insisted that i wean, i wanted natural weaning but because he was so insistant and saying that i was raising a very consieded girl and harming my older child by paying so much attention to her, i thought that because i would be away for so long on a business trip, it would be the perfect time to wean.
She has never really stopped, I have been secretly breastfeeding her for 4 months, and i feel bad that she knows she can not do it in front of her father, it is as if she knows she is doing something wrong. my older daughter sees her ans says "i am going to tell dad you are on the boob ahahaha" and i do not know what to do.
i hate this situation because i tell her at first that she cannot have it and then i end up giving in because she starts screaming "i want mommies milk" I because i don't want DH to hear it, i just let her have it.
I don't want to wean her, i want her to decide when to stop, but the situation is tense and i am not enjoying it as i should. there are some days when she does not ask and then other days when she wants it frequently.
any suggestions. i am a bit disapointed in myself that i let dh dominate me in this issue, and now i got my daughter thinking she is doing something wrong. and also she is very interested in other women's breast, she wants to see them, even her older sister's is this normal? or could it be because we have created this taboo around the issue?
thank you for any advice or help. i am wanting to vent a bit too.
