Want to wean... & separation anxiety question
I really want to wean my "virtual DS" ... aka my pump.. I don't want to pump anymore.. my pump respond has been diminish lately, I keep producing enough for my son's 3 bottles of 3oz ea, but it makes me feel like I don't produce enough. DS is 9 months old, so there are at least 4 months more of pumping, I hope I can build a stash for the 13th months so I can stop pumping by the end of July...
DS has been deeply affected by separation anxiety, he cries as soon as he sees me at daycare room's door and he will scream bloody murder when I left him in the play-mattes while I take all his stuff from the car to the apartment. He wants me with him all the time, if I try to go load laundry or fold old laundry he will scream non stop, I hate CIO so I go back to sit next to him, sometimes that helps but other he needs me to hold him.
How do/did you handle this? How long this stage last for your LO? What else I can do to help him?
