at least a run down of how it happend. You all know I've posted alot about my dd not nursing. Well I thought she was weaning around the 15 month mark and I kept offering, and she continued and even starting asking for it around 18 months. Well now at 24 months she will refuse when I offer and she won't take it before/after naps or before bed. She will sometimes after naps and SOMETIMES in the morning if I catch her before she crawls outof bed. She also has started getting up in the night time to nurse. It's hard on me but I'm glad she's still nursing at least then.
I asked wywd a while back and I'm just stuck. I don't know what to do Or if she TRULY is weaning. She's VERY independant and I feel like I've gone overand beyond what I can do to get her to the breast. I LOVE nursing and it makes me cry to think of not nursing, but I kinda feel like it is her.
I guess I want to know what others have done in this situation.
Did your older nursing children go through this at this age? I've READ everything about self weaning and she does have many of the signs of it, but I think she is still young however nothing I do is helping, kwim? I'm not one of thosemoms that says oh she doesn't want it so she self weaned, I TRULY wanna do EVERYTHING I can do to keep this relationship going with out making it a me thing, kwim?
One site I "think" kellymom had a section on self weaning early and it said that if they:
Sucked a thumb or fingers_ She sucks her first two fingers I didn't do it she figured it out and NEVER stopped, she wouldn't take a paci and wouldn't comfort nurse even from the get go.
Had a blankie or dolly: She has a blankie that she carries EVERYWHERE I know big problems later but can't help it. LOL
And a couple of other things I can't remember anyway she met all of them so it just feels like I've lost and she's going to wean. What do you think??
Thanks girls I just really wanna know I've done all I can to keep her nursignas I thinks it's theBEST for Toddlers too. She's NEVER been sick even when dh and I have been BAD sick
: and throwing up she's NEVER done it!! I really account that to BFing.
