It will reduce your supply...
THe more you breast feed the more your supply will kick in (its our bodies way of producing enough for our LO)
So as long as you dont pump eventually your supply will reduce .. it may hurt if you cut him dramatically... but if you have slowly already started reducing then your body realises and will/should start producing less as its not needed as much

thanks :)



cold turkey weaning is just something i couldnt handle but its gotten to the point my body is at wits end :( ive lost so much weight and cant gain it back



he isnt taking it to well lol and refuses bottles
so is just using cups and such.. i thought maybe the bottle could substitute at night for comfort because he uses the b**b for comfort but it seems to be a no go



cutting down has been my next step.. its just stressful D:

i weaned at 15 months COLD TURKEY - i mentally couldnt deal with it anymore - it hurt my b**bs and she refused bottles until she knew she wouldnt get b**b anymore.... He WONT starve himself (of course hes eating food as well but you know what i mean) - and yes at the older age it is purely comfort and habit ... its all they have ever known and feel safe doing so. Stick to your guns!

oh woah lol
i weaned at 11 months with the other child, cold turkey but being so young i dont think she was that attatched lol .. but blake has been so much harder regarding b**b b**b and it has to be because of age -_-



he pulls at my top and such



thanks though
i know what you mean.. im just more worried with his major breakdowns.. he has them even when i refuse to give him the b**b, and he tends to hate me



lmao he gives me a bottom lip drop and the worst evil eyes D: im a sucker
