Why I Don’t Want to Nurse Anymore

I fully intended to nurse Isaac (who is now 9 1/2 months) until he was a year, like I did Emma. But oh my word. Im seriously thinking about starting the weaning process now.

Why, you ask? Why would I do such a horrible, heartless thing? One reason.


Isaacs first teeth recently came in, and now he has four very sharp, pointy vampire teeth. Okay, theyre not that pointy. But they are tiny and sharp. And when he nurses there are parts of me that are being rubbed raw to the point that it feels like FIRE when he is nursing.

It hurt SO bad yesterday that I was looking up the symptoms of mastitis to see if I had an infection. But I didnt have all of the symptoms, it just hurt when he nursed.

Today I woke up and, finding that I was still in pain, I checked myself out and found raw spots where his teeth keep hitting on me. OUCH OUCH OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOUCH.

Im telling you, this is painful. It hasnt had a chance to heal and Im wondering how it will.

No, Im not planning on weaning. But Im seriously hoping time flies and hes a year before I know it because this is painful.

Have you ever been tempted to stop nursing?
