DD is still happily BFing, (she never took a bottle)
but only nurses 4 times a day now at 9 months. I am on the verge of
stopping BFing all together. I feel like I need my body back. I am
just not myself (since DD reduced her feedings from 7 to 4) and I want
to lose weight and feel better about me. I still have 8 pregnancy
pounds and about 10 more after that I'd like to lose. I just feel off.
like a bad mother. As soon as I start thinking those things I start
feeling guilty, that I am taking something away from her too soon. I
know that 9 months is great, that I gave her a lot and please don't
think that we're going to stop cold turkey. Her pedi gave me
transition formula to try with her and see if she'll take it from a
sippy at lunch time. I know it will take time to transition her from
the breast to a sippy since she's never taken any fluids from anything
Anyone else deal with these feelings and how did you
cope? How did you wean? I just don't know how to deal with the guilt
and emotions that come with weaning.
