My goal was...is, 2 yrs
But I've about had it :/

He FIGHTS naps, he bites
He plays

And there are nights when he nurses ALL NIGHT LONG

He is almost 14 months

I'm dying over here

Not to mention I'm alone with 3 kids 90%of the time so while I'm in the room with Matthew....my older 2 are unsupervised

Some one tell me why I should keep going and why I shouldn't just wean him....please

I'm only @ 6 weeks so I'm not going to be good support. But I'm sure the benefits out weigh quitting.

My guy just turned 15 months and I can honestly say "yes" to your question. So many times I have wanted to quit.

Sometimes I feel that way too, and mine is 4 months. But then I see SO struggle to give him a bottle and the pure happiness when he gets on the Boob.
Mind you it could very well be different with their age differences.

We're at 18m and I'm SO ready to wean. If I sit down for a moment, he attacks me and if I deny him, he pinches/bites/scratches/throws things.

At this point, I feel the the joy in it is gone for me : (

Yes! Every other day!!! My ds is 11 months and does all the same things your lo does. It's so frustrating!
I can barely get him to nurse 2 minutes straight bc he's SO busy!! Then he wants to snack nurse ALL day, making it hard to be out & about.

You know, because breastmilk immediately loses its benefits with the first step.

Smh

What??? Some babies walk at 10 months. You think it's good to wean then? And what does one arbitrary milestone have to do with another?
