It's Time To Wean

Posted by luvrin at 2:54 PM
I've been breastfeeding Dante for over a year now and I feel that he's become too attached to the breast. He comes to me for comfort sucks as well as needing it to get to sleep. I don't mind it, it's beautiful watching him sleep on it but some days I don't get to have showers as P comes home late and I can't leave Dante while he's sleeping.

With Tony, I breastfed for over 2 years and I managed to wean him by "controlled crying" at a sleep center. It was successful, but it was awful doing the whole leaving them to cry thing. I don't want to do the same thing to Dante so I'm going to see the doctor to discuss my options on weaning. I want Dante to be able to be seperate from me and not be so clingy. It's going to be hard, but I really feel that I need to get this done sooner rather than later so I can reclaim some semblance of a life.

I don't know why I'm blogging about it. Maybe to make it official? Hmm. I'll update on the progress anyway (if any!) I just need to be optimistic about it... *deep breathes* Ok off to the doctors I go!
