Quoting JenniferW [Laina's Mom)]:" Thanks, its funny it took two months of pumping and feeding before I almost gave up BFing cause she wouldn't ... [snip!] ... least til we move next month and she gets her own room and bed. How long did you BF and if you don't mind, how did you wean..?"
I gave up
after about 2 weeks with my son (16 months now) he wasn't getting enough and my nipples were raw and bleeding. I tried different positions but nothing seemed to work. Mostly my MIL talked me out of it that I wasn't making enough for him and he's starving. With my daughter I went through the same pain for a month and gave up. I never had a lactation nurse or support (I was a new mom and didn't know anything) My daughter is 8 now. With my son though if I started to leak I would immediately put him on and he would drink what was there. Wish I could have gone longer.
