I'm a big extended breastfeeding advocate... but I'd like to whine for a minute.
My 2 yr old daughter is not taking my weaning cues nearly as easily as my son did. I began weaning him around his 2 yr mark as well and he seemed cool with it, only a few crying moments.... I switched him to nap time only nursing and then limited night nursing to bedtime and dawn two weeks later in order to get my fertility back and conceive his sister... She isn't so easy... or maybe my memory is off.
I'm just afraid sometimes she is going to irritate me so much that I will feel forced to go cold turkey and I don't want to ...I'm just finally ready to get good sleep... I'm very tired.
She nags and nags and nags like you would not believe... and we got into a terrible pattern for a while. I changed my approach and stop saying no (out of annoyance) and things improved. But she is back at it again. I try to make the issue of nagging me the "point" (not the nursing) and even have had to time out her for nagging so much... and that feels so screwed up... it is screwed up... but there are days if she had her way I would never get away and she irritates my nipples so much I'm maxed out at 45min for both sides. She has taken to shallow latching and squirming and tugging and leaving teeth marks... and she will now allow me to adjust her latch, never really has.
She is a very intense personality... suggestions, kind suggestions welcomed.
