I'm so exhausted, and bf'ed out! (I'm sure many of you can relate (I hope!)). And need to vent!!
Ds is 14mo and though he eats regular meals, still wants to nurse ALL.THE.TIME. I'm a sahm and literally most times I sit down he toddles over to me, climbs up in the chair/sofa/dinning chair and starts pulling on my shirt and pawing at my breasts. This seems to always excited dd (3.5y) and she comes over and asks for nikk too. (I tandem nursed and starting cutting her back about 7 months ago, she currently nurses once a day).
The worst part is ds's reaction if I communicate to him that he may not nurse at the moment he's chosen. He throws a fit, and if I don't give in after about 3 minutes he starts screaming high pitch screams and throwing himself backwards, this is when I give in. I can't stand the screaming and I end up feeling guilty for not giving him what he is seeking. This is where most my frustration is coming from. DD never acted like this.
How can I overcome this? I'm sick of nursing. I'm sick of my breasts being the center of my kids universe ( HA! I'm a super pro breast feeder, my kids have never used a bottle, and here I am in the valley of bfing doom and gloom!).
When dd turned 3 I was able to set boundaries with her and be honest with her about me not wanting to nurse more x amount of times. But what can I do with my sweet ds who's only 14 months!
I've got three monkeys jumping on the bed!!
