Sad and guilty.

Well I have to stop nursing my 22 month old until the baby gets here I was hoping I could nurse thought the pregnancy but nursing him has been causing contractions and I'm only 34 weeks so baby girl is not ready yet. The dr says I need to quit to keep the baby from coming now which she has now threatened twice been in labor and delivery twice to stop contractions. I feel guilty though because my son so does not want to stop nursing and screams when I say no you can't have any. How do you explain to a 22 month old you can't have it so u can protect your baby sister uggh I feel like s horrible mommy.

Aww...I'm sorry! But you did awesome.

You nursed 16m longer than the average. Big brother is a lucky duck to have such a loving momma.

Thank you I needed to hear that I was trying to go for the self weening but I don't know if he would ever ween he is addicted to momma milk which I think is why it's so hard he crys so hard when I say no uugghh. Hopefully he will loose interest quickly.

Aww :-( I'm sorry. You made it a long time though!
Could you tell him it's all gone and get him a cup instead? I wouldn't say it's bc of the baby. I'd be to afraid of him not liking the baby bc she took his milk away.

It's only a few weeks. Maybe if he's still interested you can tandem nurse once baby arrives. If not, you've done great, nothing to feel guilty about. The sadness I do understand. *hugs*

That's a good idea I've been saying its because it gives momma contraction that are ouiees but all gone might work I will try that. I've been giving him a cup to but he is a very insistent little guy believe me.

Well you did great even if you do stop now!

Maybe after the baby comes he can pick it back up? Just tell him your milk had to take a vacation, lol...

My friend managed to talk her toddler into stopping by putting a bandaid over her boobies, and said she was hurt and the Dr. Told her no more milk! Lol, I can't believe he fell for it, but it worked for her. But don't feel like a bad mom, your doing what's right. You will feel much worse if your baby girl comes too soon!

My dd will be 22 months on Thursday and she is a big time booby baby too. I can understand the screaming to nurse. You did a great job on bf him for such a long time! Maybe when baby comes, he will start back up (if both of you want him to)!
