It's shit, isn't it? Just moaning really! Ds is 20 months so he doesn't need breast milk but he's still on me all night long and through the day. I've got CBeebies on, I've got all his toys out but he just wants to climb all over me!

Last night I tried to go to bed when dh got home but he kept bringing ds to me be because 'he's so unhappy and asking for mama'. Ffs! Then he came in asking what to feed the other two.

Mum's really don't get a break, do they? Bf or if they don't get a break, it's just the bf thing is driving me mad because of the blasted night feeds.

Being ill as a mum sucks!

Being ill is horrendous when you've got kids to look after!

I night weaned DS1 at around 2 years using the Dr Jay Gordon method: worth a look? It's so knackering.

I'll take a look at that method. Thanks smile
