Ok, you guys, i really need some help, ASAP: i canNOT nurse Sophia anymore. I cannot take it. I hate it. I am on progesterone supplements to try to concieve, and of course that is making my breasts hurt and nipples sensitive. You all are welcome to think to yourselves that you are better than me because i feel that way, but this is how it is. I just don't want to do this anymore. I don't want to force my next child to share them, either; i want him to have his own special nursing relationship like his sister had. I absolutely don't want to nurse during pregnancy, period. I don't know how many rounds of progesterone it might or might not take to achieve pg'cy, but it's not going to feel any better when i am pregnant. I have been trying to talk to her about it, but i don't know if she gets it or not. This past couple of weeks, she actually has dropped the after nap nurse several times; once she went all night and all day until evening until she nursed. But i cannot nurse her to sleep, it is too much, and i end up looking at her and resenting her and wishing she would leave me alone. I want to end this before i really start to hate her for nursing, but i don't know how . She might be one of those kids that you have to just go cold turkey on, but i'm not sure how that could be accomplished. Help! Oh: She is 28 months old, and night weaned.
