How are you dealing with the pain and tenderness?

My plan has always been to let my son self wean and now that he is 20 months old he is down to pretty much mornings, nap and bedtime.

My nipples are so sensitive right now though that sometimes it feels like I'm being stabbed! OW, ow, ow!

Im still nursing, I have a 3 month old. I dont have any pain. But if you put the lanolin cream it really helps.

I haven't had any issues yet, but I'm only 4 weeks along. I'm not sure what I'll do if it becomes painful. My son is 22 months and our nursing schedule is the same as yours - morning, naptime, bedtime. Every now and then we do a late afternoon feed, when he's super grumpy and requests it.

I've been thinking about weaning when he turns 2 in a couple months, but I guess I'll see how I feel then.

I don't think the lanolin cream would help. It's not pain from cracking or anything like that which is what the lanolin helps with. Its just from the extra progesterone I think. My friend who is 5 weeks ahead of me said hers has eased up so here's to hoping!

Hi, Dianna..it's Kimberly

I am still breastfeeding my 19 month old. She still nurses approx 4-5 times/24 hour period. I don't think she is getting much now though, and I hope to gently wean..hopefully a few months before this new one is to arrive. I have only had a little sensitivity while nursing..mainly during let down. I don't have any advice on it though..hopefully yours will ease up once this first trimester is over. (((hugs)))

Hey Kimberly! I think we're the only ones still nursing from DIF. My pain comes and goes so it's bearable. He's also pretty good about it if I say milkies need to go bye bye. I'm actually thinking I may end up tandem nursing if he doesn't wean during the pregnancy. That's going to be interesting!

There are a lot of ladies who make tandem nursing work..my DIF girl is pretty stubborn, and loves to nurse..so I may be there with you doing the tandem thing..but hoping not too at this point!!!
