I'm having issues right now. Ds will not nurse. He hasn't nursed in weeks. I can't pump. I keep telling myself that it lasted a year and now is an ok time to stop. There is nothing I can do. And to top it all off my period returned. I haven't had a period in almost two years.<br><br>
Ds is our last baby (that's what we plan) and I feel kind of useless at this point. I feel like I never hold him, his choice. I feel lonely. I feel like a stage of my life is over. It went by so fast.<br><br>
I'm trying to move on. I'm working out now and losing weight. My body is my own after almost 4 years of pregnancy and nursing. Most women would be happy.<br><br>
What do I do? My heart is aching for this connection. I miss him. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/gloomy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Gloomy">: Why is this such a big deal for me?

I know the ending of this wonderful relationship is tough and bittersweet...DD self-weaned once I was already PG and I still longed for and missed that time together.<br><br>
Maybe you can set aside some reading time. It won't necessarily be cuddles but at least DS would be on your lap and near you.<br><br>
It sure is difficult to handle them growing up isn't it?!?! It seems everyday there's something new to make me wonder where my little baby has gone.<br><br>
But you'll get through this and develop a new and special type of bonding time with your DS. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug">

Wow- he's really much too young to wean.<br><br>
Is he getting any other milk?<br><br>
Is he getting any other sucking?<br><br>
I would make sure there's no other milk. I would not spoonfeed AT ALL (just let him self feed)<br>
And I would eliminate all other sucking (no bottles, pacifiers, sippy cups)<br><br>
It sounds like a nursing strike.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug"><br><br>
