I am a HUGE extended nursing advocate. I gently encouraged the weaning of my daughters during the subsequent pregnancies. My first was 3.5yr when I was pregnant with my second. My second daughter was 26mo when I was pregnant with my son. We have decided we have completed our family. Unfortunately - my skill set for weaning is limited. We have tried the don't offer, don't refuse. But the offering was minimal to start with - so now all I have is "don't refuse" - but I am constantly nursing. I literally can not sit down - or he wants to nurse.
I increased my work hours about 5 months ago - so I have been easing into the weaning - since I know it is a huge adjustment with work alone.
I love nursing my children. I am an RN and an IBCLC. It has truly defined who I am. But I am not so patiently awaiting being done nursing to have a breast reduction. I am 5'3" and wear a 36K. I have severe migraines, neck pain and my spine has been permanently damaged by the weight of my breasts.
Please - I want your constructive criticism and pieces of advice- but please be kind.
Thanks - Heather
