I was talking to my mil yesterday about how we needed to do a couple of practice runs with my 2yr old dd spending the night with her before the actual due date comes (7/27) so that when I go to the hospital it won't be her first time away. We have discussed this previously. But yesterday she informed me that dd can not come spend the night with her until she is weaned. She said it is too cruel and traumatic for dd, and she doesn't want her waking up expecting to nurse. I can understand a little where she is coming from and I have the same fears that it will all be too tramatic, but I had decided that dd is not ready to wean at this time. Mil has pushed me to wean from day one of knowing about pg. She knows that I have tried gentle weaning and that dd was not ready and I would probably tandem nurse. I am really depressed about this. Help me I don't know what to do? Did anyone face this issue? How about moms who didn't wean, what did your toddlers caretaker say about how the nights went without you...was your toddler traumatized?? HELP!!! I'm running out of time!
