Hi all! I was initially very interested in CLW but then enter into the picture horribly nasty divorce and even more nasty custody battle. This week we started an every 36 hour visit schedule. He gets 36 hrs and then I get 36 hr and so on. DD is 25mos BTW. When she returned to me after the overnight, I think she nursed around the clock for my 36 hrs and all night long. Can we continue this until she choses to wean? I think he was hoping this schedule would force her to wean but it's kinda done the opposite and she's now obsessed with nursing when she is with me. Is it possible to do CLW with this type of visitation schedule or is she going to wean early from this set up? Any other single, nursing moms out there that have to do visitation with dad?

It's hard to tell. There is a good chance that the cycle of interuptions in nurisng will effect her weaning time, but that doesn't mean you need to wean now! I mean, she might end up weaning months earlier (or later ) than she would have in a different situation, but you can still encourage her to nurse when she is with you so she can make that much of the decision on her own.

It sounds like she is switching back and forth fine for now. I think it's great that you are trying to help her through this. I'm sure that knowing that nursing is there when she gets back to you will help her a lot in this hard time.

Thanks ladies! She's actually nursing up a storm when she comes back to me, as in non-stop. I wish I could say she's doing well with the transitions but she's actually going thru some very hard times and if she needs nursing, then I'll be here. I'm sure this visitation schedule will ultimately affect her weaning age but for now she's still nursing and there's no stopping her. I guess I consider myself very lucky to have had this special relationship for 2 years.
