Weaning off breastfeeding twins
I've been breastfeeding my twins for almost two years now.I decided that I have to wean them because I'm losing a lot of weight,and now that they are eating meals and only breastfeed to help them sleep..at first 2 days it was hard because they're rejecting their milk in a bottle,and so hard to make them fall asleep..but after a week things are on a smoothsail..it feels like that they dont want to breastfeed anymore.but when it is time for bed,we cuddle and that what helps them get sleepy..
Decision to wean my 3 month old/crying and pulling away from the nipple
(Costamesa ca usa)
Hello, I am in need of advice before making the decision to wean my 3 month old due to mental and physical exhaustion!
My son will not nurse for more than 5 minutes and only one side every 3 to 4 hrs since his delivery.
I pump all day long to empty my breast and try bottle feeding my breastmilk with no success. He will not drink more than 1oz. He will latch on and for the most part start crying and pulling away from the nipple after only 3-5 minutes , 7 minutes if I am lucky!
I have tried pumping before feeding him as I do have a fast let down and still no luck. it is very stressful and the more i try the more he fusses and screams if I try bringing him back to the nipple.THIS HAPPENS IN EVERY FEEDING SESSION!
I waste so much of the milk I pump on a daily basis. I am suffering from postportum depression and nursing him is the only thing that helps me feel better.
I tied my tubes during my csection delivery and sadly regret the decision. I have an 8yr old boy and a 7yr old girl that I did not nurse due to my lack of strong will. I was than 21yrs old and gave up too easily(yrs later I regretted that so much).
I don't want to do that with my little baby!! Please help me. I called the hospital lactation consultants where I deliver and they claimed not to help babies older than 6 weeks. What do I do?
I have also tried different nursing positions including nursing while walking and different bottles, Nothing works!! Please help me !!
He does have a bowel movement and wet diapers as normal, but its all extra work that I have to do in order for this to happen. Again it's taking a toll on me!! Thanks im advanced for any advice.
Can extended pacificer use lead to early self weaning from nursing in toddlers?
(Cincinnati OH, USA)
I am wondering if there has ever been a study about older babies and self weaning from nursing and pacificer use. Specifically babies between 12 -18 months old. Do you think older babies wean early after 12 months because of extended pacificer use?
