Ive Been thinking a lot lately.....Im worried about my 6 month old son not taking to breastfeeding like

he used to.....for those who dont know...me and my hubby went on a vacation and then we moved to a

new house so we had very sweet family members watch our boys until we got everything done and

settled...but anyways I really love breastfeeding and Im just scared he won't be as interested in it

when he comes home....ugh...plus im also trying to put him on a schedule with eating...and

sleeping..and I have no clue where to start! he loves nursing on me all night long which I can't stand

anymore...it hurts!!and since he is starting solids I figured it would be a little

easier...but who knows..I guess this is one of my 'down' moods...BUT on the brighter side

I get to see my boys!! we are leaving tomorrow to get them...alright well i guess imma get off of here

and do something productive...lol

babies go through all sorts of phases with nursing.  Nursing strikes (when baby hardly nurses) and growth spurts (when you're open 24/7!)

It can be tough, but good for you for nursing and for sticking it out until now!  That's awesome.  Look at it this way: you're half way to a year and you've made it through the worst.  Also, if you stop nursing, think of how much money you'll spend in 6 months on formula.  It's around $20/can depending on the kind you buy and at 6-12 months baby will be eating a LOT of it.  

I say just look in your heart and see what you wanna do.  It could even be that you just wrote this to get it off your chest and have no intention of stopping, I don't know, but I saw your post and wanted to encourage you.  :)
