I just found out i was pregnant. I have a 19 month old and she still nurses.
Do i need to stop nursing?
I actually strongly dislike nursing it has given me horrible migraines. So I will nor be nursing the baby.
With that being said how do i wien the 19month old. She very attached to mommy milk. She eats really good and loves cow milk.

I hated nursing too and actually quit after a few days. It was be completely miserable and continue to nurse and resent my baby or formula feed and be able to bond and not resent my baby so I just made the switch so there was no weening. I guess you could try going cold turkey and just offering her something else when she asks?

I started hating it a few months after she started. I am very big chested so i can't nurse just anywhere and everywhere. I can't get things done bc I'm tied to a chair and baby. And like i said made me very sick.
I am like you i want to enjoy my baby.

That’s why I’m glad I stopped when I did, like you my chest is large and I would not have been comfortable breastfeeding around my kids and family let alone out in public and the cover was just a PITA! I didn’t like being stuck sitting there nursing. My husband was so amazing, he realized how negatively it was impacting me and went out and bought formula and bottles at 3 am! He took the baby from me and fed her a bottle and I was just thrilled that I could finally sleep! He took care of her all night that night. The next day I was like a new woman! I actually wanted to be around my baby and didn’t feel dread when she cried to be fed. Formula was seriously like a gift from god lol!

Lol yes to save our sanity! God bless that wonderful person! If you truly don’t like breastfeeding, do not let anyone guilt you into doing it with the whole oh breast is best, you’re a mom so you have to make sacrifices blah blah blah. No, feed your baby how you see fit and be happy because happy mom equals happy baby! And let’s face it, happy baby means happy household altogether lol! Good luck and congratulations on your pregnancy!

I nursed through a pregnancy. There were moments I wanted to stop. But he has a dairy allergy and I kept going. I’m glad I did. Especially when he somehow got a virus and would only nurse.

Oh I'm sorry dairy allergy is hard. My friends little boy is the same way.
I have heard bad things about nursing while pregnant. Like your teeth get lose and sensitive.

I have a 2 year old who is boob obsessed and I'm 29 weeks pregnant. We nursed till about a month ago. I just started cutting one feeding at a time. Cold turkey is hard. There is nothing wrong with nursing while pregnant as long as you don't have a history of preterm labor. That is what my ob told me.
