I fed DD1 until she was 13 months, she stopped when I was pregnant (I think the wincing on my part didn't help...) DD2 has been EBF, she has never taken a bottle and always spits it out. I want to have a life, I want the option to go away with DH for the night, I want to sleep in a hotel without having kids nearby, I want to not have to be here every frigging night to put her to bed. I gave her some warm cows milk in a cup before bed, read her and DD1 stories etc and then put her in teh cot, she was majorly pissed but calmed down quite quickly. Now she is asleep. And I have teh guilts that she has gone to sleep with her BM!
Well done you! LOL at 'the guilts' I will be there myself in a few months and know how you're feeling. I'm not looking forward to it but as mumblecrumble said 'you have fed her so much delicious milk!'
Am amused now as she was so pissed off with me! She only has a few words but just screeched, and yelled Mummy! Babby! (her word for BM) <pause>
<longer pause as I hid outside door while she knew I was there>
<rolled over and started chatting to her teddies>
I have been promising a friend that we would go away for a weekend when teh DC's stopped feeding, she managed it and now I have only to cut down morning feeds, although I think I might keep that up for a bit longer... I'm such a wuss!
She woke at 5 and I was so sleepy I forgot about the water in her room and fed her. Oops. I fed her again when we got up at 7 btu am going to try and leave it at that for today.
I had managed to get DD1 to stop feeding at night by about a year by giving her water to break the habit, but when I tried it with DD2 she screamed and woke DD1 up, so I caved really quickly Need resolve to do it, last time tried was 3 months ago!
