I have finally started my second weaning on 1 Feb 08. That marks 20 months breastfeeding for Isabel, an improvement from Ian’s 17 months.
Well, Isabel still wanted to be breastfed, but I’ve decided to give it a stop. The main reason is that, I’ve noticed Isabel has been suckling for comfort and not for the milk itself. I also doubt how much she actually drank each day, perhaps less than 2 oz.
She’d cry for ‘nen-nen’, but the moment she has it, she just kept it in her mouth - no suckling, no motion, nothing! And she wanted my nipples to be kept inside until she is asleep. That is not right, she is treating me like a pacifier already.
