Quoting Becky☮Will:" Nobodys been in here in a while but I need to vent I guess. I'm 6 weeks pregnant and my son is 2 1/2. ... [snip!] ... and this morning he did and I hated it. Any suggestions or advice? I'm thinking I'm just going to have to finally wean him :-("
Do you have anyone that can take him for a couple nights? I was in the same situation and ready to wean but just didn't know what to do. So my MIL took them for a couple nights and when they came back I told him that there was no more milk and that I had bobo's, or that they were broken. It worked, I only had to remind him for a couple days and he stopped asking so much. He actually became quite the cuddler after that and we've bonded much more. As the new baby approached I kept letting him know that my boobs were busy making milk for the new baby. I expected him to be very jealous when I first nursed but he was super excited! I think he was just glad someone got the boob, lol. He was just shy of 2 1/2 when we stopped. He'll be 3 in NOV and is adjusting great to the new LO.
With all that being said, you don't have to wean. If you can make it until your colostrum comes in I've heard the pain lessens greatly then. I made it until about 17 or 18 weeks but just took the opportunity to wean when it came up. But I had been ready to wean for awhile just didnt want to rush him. Good luck!
