My SO has been a great supporter of breastfeeding. He talks it up to everyone, meaning dads that are expecting babies and saying how beneficial it is and encouraging them to support their wives/SO's. He went to my breastfeeding classes, showed up when the LC came to help me, just 100% supporter.
Now that my son is 14mos he's been slightly annoyed, but only at night. My son has to have his late night snack or he will be screaming crying. My SO feels helpless because he can't really console him because he will cry for hours. I know it's just a night time comfort thing now.
to be honest it is kind of annoying to me too when I have to always have him attached to me and there's nothing his dad can do to help, I just give in. I have even tried offering water, yeah, he takes the water, sucks some in his mouth and lets it pour out, or he'll have fun by throwing the water at us, umm NO not fun
I do start school FT on the 18th, and I'm working 2 part time jobs, in the next week, as well so I won't be around as often.
So when should I stop BF
Cold Turkey? Just suck it up and let him self-wean? Wait until the household get's more busy, maybe he will not even notice?
