Haven't been on in a while.but me and Malachi had a time weaning. 4 straight days and nights of screaming but we made it. So here is the question. We stopped b/f at 19 months, but he is still highly interested in boobs not just mine just about anybodies. He has to have his hand in your shirt to sleep almost like a securtiy blanket or something. What can you do to stop him or is this just something they go threw..My lil man turned two on07/21/2009 and is still tring b/f. any advice would be greatly appreciated.

He wasn't probably ready. Hence the screaming. But think of it this way: the boobs were security and love for most of his life to this point. My youngest hasn't nursed since Feb. and still nuzzles my breasts when he's tired. I redirect him if he tries grabbing them, but otherwise, I'm good.

 It's normal...

Not sure what to do to get him to stop. I let my girls wean themselves...

He wasn't ready. If a child is ready it will be no problem

It was because of medical reasons...I cried with each and ever day and night...

fj, 99% of the time when a doc tells a woman she must wean the doc is wrong. If you don't want to share publicly, shoot me a message and we can see whether your doc is actually more like a duck (quack quack). **smile**

Baby's behavior is 100% normal. You can discourage it the same way you'd discourage ANY unwanted behavior. Hoever, you may be able to go back to nursing. Let's check it out.
