So do you ever feel like not nursing? My son is at this really annoying stage where he wants me to be running around National Geographic style all the time so he can "sip" at his nursies and then run off and come back... well, that drives me crazy, I want him to either nurse or not, the :flyby stuff really irritates me because it's a lot of work for me. I usually have to put his sister down or rearrange her, and that takes time and energy, and then to have him trying to crawl up my shirt while I'm doing it...
Of course, my son knows the drill-- if he really wants to nurse and not mess around, he'll say "Mamma, ______ hurts! Kiss a booboo, nurse you BeanBean?" with this face:
. He knows that if he's really hurting, I won't deny him the breast. Still, sometimes it really feels like he's just out to make me spend my whole day on my butt, boobs exposed. He actually told me he wanted a sip yesterday! A sip! I'm totally going
trying to keep up with him. As committed as I am to child led weaning, I still feel like telling him no more often than not. He gets so sad, though, he thinks the whole world is against him or something and he just bawls and bawls and bawls; I have no idea what to do.
Please tell me that this doesn't last forever, that he really will wean eventually.... tell me that I'm not creating a monster by caving whenever he cries.
