want(ed) to CLW but i am LOSING my mind!! - Page 2

post #21 of 22

just went through the same thing...

We have been going through the same thing. After several (unsuccessful) attempts to night wean between the ages of 1 and 2, I finally one morning decided to wean completely. I think she was demanding so much nursing because she wasn't getting enough "fun" attention from me (we also have a 6 month old.) Weaning forces me to play,read, sing, talk and do all kinds of fun stuff with her. She is so much happier since we stopped. Now I occasionally let her nurse if she is really losing it- like every 4 or 5 days, but this is after 2-3 weeks of no nursing at all. Now she asks " nurse for a minute?" I always wanted to CLW, but after raising all kinds of farm animals I started to think it wasn't all that un-natural to give our toddlers a little shove away from the breast when you are starting to resent them.

I am going to move this out to Breastfeeding Beyond Infancy since many of the posts, including the OP, seem to be leaning towards mother-led weaning techniques.
