Re: I need some encouragement today!

My mum wean all three of her kids before a year and said we all self-weaned. She also figures I should nurse DS as long as I can cause it's healthy for both of us. The part I'm struggling with now is she has been my baby go-to person, I ask her baby questions every day and really value her advice. Thing is now that DS is starting solids and getting closer to the age my siblings and I "self-weaned" (~8 months), she just doesn't have the answers anymore to some of the things I worry about, like how to maintain our BF relationship as long as possible. Time to trust myself and let my mum know what's going on without asking for so much help. It's hard on both me and my mum, but we'll all get through it.

Hang in there and do what you know is right and just tell your mom what's going on and how happy you are about it.

Re: I need some encouragement today!

You are an amazing mom. Not many moms would have kept bf without any IRL support. You will know when it's time to stop BF. If your goal is till 2yrs then go for it. I'm in the same boat. I also want to BF DS till he's at least 2. When I need encouragement I come on the board and read other mom's stories. It helps. I know it's hard to keep bf when mom doesn't approve. My mom pushes DS to drink cows milk almost every time she's over and DS refuses. Haha.
