This Whole Breastfeeding Thing..

Trying to wean Hampton from nursing, is like taking crack away from a crackhead.

Talk about total withdrawal. Holy Hell.

I'm taking Prozac, my daily vitamins and birth control .. Every day.

And that's not to mention my need for alcohol, um, almost every day. Whether it be one glass, or the whole dang bottle.

I SHOULDN'T be breastfeeding.

So I don't nurse when I'm doing any of these things, and Hampton isn't having it. I'm talking full out head banging, screaming crying, like pure torture.

Is this normal?

I'm scared to talk to my pediatrician. He might think I really am CRAZY.

But he's one. And I'm done. Apparently he isn't. And I'm totally torn.

  1. I think the best thing you can do is just to stick to your guns. Let him throw his tantrums and *hopefully* it wont last too much longer! You don't want to cave in, not even once, because it'll prolong the whole situation. I was never able to breastfeed, so don't personally know the struggles with weaning from breastfeeding....but I assume it is similar to weaning from anything a bottle, a paci, take away something they love and are accustomed to and force something else on them and they will FREAK. Good luck!!

    You're not crazy. ;) I WISH I could have some boozy booze right now, LOL!!! Drink one for me!
