My 10 mo old is starting to self wean during the day. And by self wean, I mean suck for two minutes, bite, and move away and wail her special mom-I-want-finger-food-please wail. Its extremely painful to nurse her when she is like this, which is anytime she isn't about ready to nap or getting up from a nap. She acts like she wants me every few hours anyway but this afternoon I gave her a bottle instead, and am about ready to just flat quit.
Prenap, prebed, and in the very early morning, she nurses like a champ. Is it normal for a baby to only want you three times a day at this age? Does it even count as bf if its only a couple times a day? Will my milk go away if she doesn't do the shorter nursings, I feel like I have a ton of milk now and I like that. She sleeps all night so no night nursing. Opinions! Ideas!
