I feel so guilty because I resent nursing. When bed time comes, I dread it. I day weaned, although she still asks during the day, and I have to say no. But I feel like I'll be nursing her to sleep forever

When I weaned DD my La Leche reminded me that the recommendations are not for moms of toddlers to cry and detest and resent nursing. I think the thing to figure out is it is a phase or a behavior that can be changed or is weaning the answer? i tried a lot to give DD better manners around nursing and tried as long as i could to nurse her because she was a true addict, but i eventually made the choice to wean her. It was over 1.5 years ago and i still have twinges of guilt and she still ocassionally asks for it! LOL

As much as I would love to wean right now, I know in my heart it isn't the right time. She is getting her 2 year molars, and needs that comfort. I also fear doing it the wrong way, since we are trying for baby #2, I don't want her to resent the new baby, when that time comes. She is a toddler, who enjoys toddler, nursing, gymnastics. I correct it, have made her stop nursing, but she still does it. *sigh*

Props to you for breastfeeding for so long! I'm sorry you're having such a tough time weaning.

I wish it would be easy for you like when my DD weaned herself. I think it's more difficult to wean a toddler. I mean, not just the process but the emotions of a mom that go with it.
