Frustrated with DH over weaning

I am completely at my wits' end right now. DD is on the floor at 9pm having a complete meltdown after day 3 of daytime weaning and zero napping. I haven't had a break all day. DH is nowhere in sight. I am so utterly pissed at him for still being at the office when I absolutely needed him to put her to bed and I don't know what to do with my hysterical child who insists on nursing to calm down. Yes, I could give in, but then I would undo an entire week of not nursing her at all except for in the morning when she wakes up.

I know I am probably just being hormonal, but weaning her should NOT be a one person job.

Re: Frustrated with DH over weaning

  • I'll probably be going through the same thing when the time comes.  DH doesn't get off of work until 9-10 and DD's bedtime is at 7...she almost always nurses to sleep so it will be very interesting to see how we're going to wean.  Good luck!!!

  • Hang in there. I know exactly that frustration. Its very isolating and you want to pull all your hair out.

    I have no advice about the weaning except just trying to rock and comfort and get her to the point where she just needs you, and not a breast. Sucks. I'm sorry!

  • ohh i am SO SORRY.  i hate when my DH isn't around when i need him, whether it is for logical reasons or not. you've been going thru a lot lately, i can't imagine how hard it is (and i know i'll find out eventually, not looking forward to that).  good luck, you WILL get through it!
