I made it 18months!

I am so proud to say I made it to 18months with DS3 But sadly I did just wean him 2 wks ago. He was getting super lazy and sucking in my nipple like a straw over his teeth every time and my boobs constantly hurt with sharp pains the last couple of months, I think minor infections. BUT at least I made it to 18 months He is crying every night I put him bed now because he is used to nursing right before bed. I rock and cuddle with him for a long time before bed but he still screams like someone is tearing his arm off when I put him in bed. Now he is super clingly so I wear him more. I think time will help him.

Warning to those over producers of milk like me...It took 2 PAINFUL weeks of engorgment and cabbage to lose the pain. Just prepare yourself. And nope I didn't stop cold turkey, what a pain that was. Even though the last 2 weeks was a total PITA it was worth it all. We did enjoy our BF'ing relationship for 95% of the time. That is once past the first 2 months

18 months is awesome!! I weaned ds at 17 months. He stopped asking so I stopped offering. It went pretty smoothly for us. Last week he was sick and was asking for it again. He's 23 months now. It made me sad.

Congrats on nursing for 18 months! Sad that it doesn't sound like your DS was ready to wean yet.

Great job, mama! Do you cosleep? Maybe you could try bringing him to bed with you and snuggling there til he falls asleep. And if you wanted to, you could always offer the breast just for comfort sucking.
