I had a huge fight with my husband tonight. This was the first time in my life that I have ever had the feeling "so this is how people get divorced." Not that it is to that point, but this is the first time I've been SO adamantly against his viewpoint and felt he's being so selfish.
We want to TTC, and wanted to start when DD turned 2. Well, she will be 3 in July and I still have no period. It could partly be because I have such a low body fat, but I'm pretty positive it is because I have a very high-needs DD who nurses around the clock. Every few hours, even at night. He is talking about night weaning and I considered it until I did some reading on this forum. I just think it would be detrimental to her emotionally, and I just need to give her a little more time. Besides, if I get pregnant and lose my milk she would be devastated.
He thinks that I am insane and that a 3 year old doesn't need nursing. He says siblings who are 4 or 5 years apart are not emotionally well adjusted and that we are doing her more of a disservice by not cutting her off at this point. I asked him to give me some research, articles, books or something to back up this viewpoint and he will not. He says it is obvious and logical and I tell him he is being ignorant and that I have plenty of research to back up my stance. He says "all our friends have weaned their kids and they are not emotional nutcases." Not very scientific to me...(and I will beg to differ about nutcases...)
Anyway, I'm just here sobbing and wanting to do what is best for my child. I feel so alone...I WILL stand by my daughter and her needs. I've never felt such a divide between me and my husband. Can anyone share similar stories or lend support? I don't know where else to go... thank you
