Bec, Would DH not even get up if you said it would help wean? He is desperate for you to wean isn't it? You are kinder than I am letting him get out of all NWs!
Katy, I can't believe people are so rude as to comment on your BFing H! Can you just feed him upstairs before putting him to bed if you don't want anyone seeing? Sorry you feel that way but I know what you mean. People who haven't experienced it are often very ignorant. I don't tend to mention it unless people as me. Luckily I have found a few mamas at play group who also fed/are feeding 1 or 2yos. I swear one who has a DS just younger than Colby is trying to outdo me by feeing him longer
she almost seems disappointed when I say I am still feeding him. Her DS hadly eats solid food at 21mo and is on the boob day night apparently and I think she likes to be seen as the martyr who is *still* having to feed a toddler.
I am keen to wean soon but not willing to actively do it if it involves tears, which is will. I'd really like to wean the morning feed now. He skips it if DH gets him up so I will try to encourage that. Difficult to do that when DH is up and leaving for work early though.
We are also doing a midday feed which he skips if we are out and a BT feed which he only misses if I am out which has only happened a handful of times since he turned one. I get really uncomfortable and somewhat engorged if I miss both the morning and midday feed. I can never pump one side until empty and whenever I have missed a day or two of feeding I always get a blocked duct that doesn't clear until I feed LO and then it is gone in an instant. Worried that will be a problem when I wean for good but maybe not if I do it very gradually.
