I'm hoping that someone might have some advice for me and I hope I can get it without any judgement. :) I'm currently 12 weeks pregnant and nursing my 25 month old and she is now down to once a day. In the past week or two, it's become really painful and strange feeling to nurse; very uncomfortable not only physically, but psychologically for some reason. I think I've hit the end of the road before she has.
My most important question is: I heard many children will self wean once the second trimester hits, but when can I expect my breastmilk to change to colostrum? Does this normally happen during a certain week or is it different for everyone? I am trying to hold out weaning in hope that in the next few weeks, she'll wean herself but if I'm looking at another month or two, I don't think I can handle that.
Any tips on weaning her if I can't hold out? I was thinking of doing lemon juice on my breast and telling her my milk went sour so that it will keep the decision in her court so she won't feel as powerless over the situation. I want to do this as gently as possible and if possible let her feel like it's her choice. Ladies, she loves the boob so much; this is going to break her heart.
Thanks for any helpful tips. :)
