Sorry. Just HAD to say that somewhere where I wouldn't automatically get "well just stop then".<br>
OK. I'm done.<br>

Hugs! I know it can get really tiresome and frustrating sometimes. Hang in there and keep it up until the two of you know it is the right time to stop. You will be so glad you did!

i know what you mean. somedays i just wish she'd hurry up and wean (sometimes several days in a row). then others i don't ever want this period of our lives to end. infancy/toddlerhood is so short as it is, i don't want to push her into something she's not ready for.<br>
take it day by day, and remember "this too shall pass"

Yeah, he's my last babe too but I'm a brat. When he wants to nurse much more than 4 times a day without eating anything much part of me starts to wonder if I'm doing the right thing.

Facny Pants- sometimes I wonder if I'm going to end up weaning my dd to icecream <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/blush.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="blush"> In my defense its homemade organic icecream. But sometimes when I just really want to skip a nursing session, I offer her icecream and she takes me up on it. I figure if she really needed mama milk then she wouldn't trade for icecream. Right? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="innocent"><br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug"> Its hard to be a mom.

You're absolutely doing the right thing! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"> Where would he get his nutrition if he wasn't eating much and not nursing either? :LOL Besides nutrition is only part of the benefits package.

Hugs to you. I am in the same boat. Paige <span style="text-decoration:underline;">hates</span> to eat but loves to nurse. We spend hours nursing. I keep consoling myself by saying that as a SAHM, with just one babe, it is the right thing to let her nurse as she needs it. Of course, at the end of the day when I watch her sweet sleeping face, I feel silly for wishing for anything different. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">:

Oh I can so relate, I've been going bonkers for months, I've recently put limits on nursing, but man, who said wean to ice cream I might give it a shot :LOL<br><br>
It's tough to complain when people just say wean, it's also tough (at least for me) when people tell me "oh I could never do that, your so much stronger than I am". I want to scream no I'm not, but is 20 months verse 3 years really all that different?
