am i the only one left?
Ellie LOVES to nurse still and almost always wants it at bedtime and naptime, when i'm home, which is most of the time, and sometimes if she's cranky mid-morning or mid-afternoon. She's even gotten really good and maneuvering herself around Bubba if he's on one side.
BUT her latch is getting worse. about half the time i have to tell her it hurts and make her stop- which she usually agrees to, but then she wants to try the other side. if she hurts both sides, then she is usually content to give up. when i'm really full her latch is the worst, so if she wakes up in the middle of the night, unless its AFTER bubba wakes up and eats, the answer is NO and she's going back to sleep with little fight now. but bedtime and naptime are a different story, she's not giving up without "mo-mo" (translation, more milk)
i dont just want to make her wean, but we can't keep nursing with her hurting me this often. she does understand that if she hurts both sides she's done, but thats only half the time. ugh, its just a big mess. i guess if it was just her instead of both it would be easier to make guidelines, but i hate telling her no if Bubba still gets some! She's ticked enough when i tell her no for ANYTHING, that i hate the fits she throws when she wants to nurse and is still ON MY LAP with bubba, kicking and screaming. i can walk away and ignore her easier when she's not on my lap.
