My husband wants me to stop nursing our three year old
I nurse our three year old son still. He turned three two months and one week ago.
He only nurses first thing in the morning and then at naptime. He doesnt nurse at night anymore. he doesnt even nurse when he gets a booboo or upset anymore. SOme days he will go without nursing completely.
We really are having trouble with this. I am not stopping. It is so rare and the thought of not nursing anymore makes me sad.
Furthermore, his reasons are very selfish. Things like "it embarasses him" OR "I want them to be my boobs again"
WTH. We dont nurse in public anymore, havent in over a year. And as for wanting them to be his boobs again- they will always be MINE.
I dont know how to get him off of my back abotu this. It doesnt help that his mom is on his side. My mother nursed my little sisters until they were three and the other was four. I have tried explaining to my husband that natural weaning age is between 2.5 and 7 years old and he laughs saying '"no child of mine will nurse until they are seven". Well of course not- he is showing signs of stopping but hasnt completely yet
I really dont know what to do.
