...how to stop? She never took to a bottle so was breastfeed from the off and is still reluctant to have milk in her sippy cup but does have it with her cereals; loves yoghurt & cheesey stuff so does have quite a bit throughout the day. If i'm honest I've been reluctant up to now to stop but, as she's now fully equipped with a gobfull of nashers and is getting more and more independent, the time has finally come to put away the nursing bras and reclaim my boobs. Shall I just cold turkey it and steel myself against the heartbreaking wails or is there an alternative route?
I bf DS2 the longest and first cut out daytime feeds, so ew were doign early mornign and bedtime.
Finally just bedtime, over a period of weeks rather than days certainly. When he was less than keen and I felt I was just doing it to make me feel better (he was no 3 and final) I decided to stop and he and I were fine.
He was abotu 13mo btw but the age is not expecially relevant here.
Thanks for that..we're down to a morning & bedtime feed only at present & have been for some time. I've occasionally put her to bed without a bf (& without too much of a protestation due to tiredness) and i suspect the morning one will be the hardest to break. I'm not sure how this can be achieved gradually...help! (sorry if i appear slow on the uptake)
