Ds self weaned last fall. He had just turned 6. It was a very gradual thing. Anyway, since then, I gained 10 lbs!!<br><br>
My boobs are as huge as ever and I'm 10 pounds heavier. Aaaaannnnd, when ds had pink eye last week, I was so lamenting the fact that I couldnt just squirt some breast milk in his eyes, I actually had to buy pink eye drops (which worked surprisingly fast). Ugh, if ever I missed breast feeding, these are like reasons #100 #101...#102....<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
Also I miss the sense of calm bf gave me, I seem stressed more... sigh.

First off, great job nursing your son for 6 years!! Thats awesome mama!<br><br>
I am guessing that after weaning you could gain weight if you have the same diet as prior to weaning. You burn calories when nursing so you would have been buring calories you are not now that your son has weaned. I have noticed even now that my son (4.5) is slowly not nursing as much I need to watch what I eat. Wow, I hope my boobs get big after my son weans!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> Im sure if you modify your diet alittle you will be fine or maybe take a walk with your hubby and son after dinner.. or do nothing at all. Whatever mkes you happy.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/hug2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Hug2">

hey chica!<br><br>
I was a beast after kidlets weaned. Always gained after but the boobs shrunk to microscopic size <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> seemed like it took a long time before my system adjusted and I lost weight and quit acting like I was on the rag continually.<br><br>
hugs mama!

Oh sarah!<br>
Hey! that is so funny about the rag thing! Well, I have cut out Haagan Daaz, since that was almost every night! And no soda. Which I never buy, but if I go driving thru anywhere, I get it. But no more!<br><br>
How are ya, chica?<br>
Got a new number and internet is real spotty so if you ever want to chat, email me!<br><br><br><br>
Thanks for the suggestions, Doriansmummy. I know, gotta get out there! But the boobs make me look huger than I am! I hate 'em!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">
