I want to talk about my boobs today.

(Come back, don’t run away, I promise not to show you a picture of my boobs.)

They’re mine again. I got them back. The 22-month old toddler has finally weaned. 

Toddler eating

I had been trying for four long months to wean him. I figured, 18 months is a pretty decent amount of time. I weaned my first at 18 months, gradually over a week, and it was painless and fuss-free. 

There is nothing like trying to wean a breast milk addict to remind you that your children, no matter how similar they look or act, ARE COMPLETELY DIFFERENT from each other. 

I tried cutting down feeds. I rubbed freshly sliced ginger onto my boobs. I dipped them in vinegar. I ate spicy food. I told him no. Each was an epic fail. He still climbed up onto my lap, said, “Milk”, pulled my shirt up and my bra down, and helped himself. 

I felt like a vending machine. 

I knew it was a crutch. He didn’t need breast milk. But he needed to nurse when he was upset or sad. He nursed to help him fall asleep (though he could easily sleep without). He nursed because he liked it. It was like a hobby.

Last week, I was away from the boys for about 24 hours. It was a great opportunity to cut the little one off of my boobs forever. He had gone without nursing for 24 hours, and hadn’t once asked anyone where I was. Great. AWESOME.

12 hours after that, he woke up in the morning, and demanded his usual morning feed. I said no. Sorry buddy, no more milk. It’s all gone. Finished. 

There were big tears, and a lot of dramatics on the floor. I had to resist just stuffing a boob in his mouth just so he would stop screaming at 6 in the morning. After 5 minutes, I managed to distract him with a gummy bear. What?

For two days, he asked and was told no. For two days, he wept and wailed like his world had ended. 

Then just like that, he stopped crying when I told him no. He nodded wisely, as if he knew what I would say, then run off to do whatever toddlers do. 

Messy mouth child

Four days after we stopped cold turkey, he stopped asking altogether. 

Jubilant does not begin to describe how I feel about getting my boobs back. 

If you breastfed, how long did it take you to wean your baby?

    Congrats you both! My boy weaned himself at 8 months old. I wish we would do it longer than that. PS: He is just too adorable! Look at those lashes πŸ˜€

      Yes! That’s exactly what mine did, on his own, at 8 months. I felt tossed aside like an old toy he was done with. I was a little excited that he chose to be done versus me having to make him be done, but still- let me down easy!

  • March 11, 2014 J.Lee

    Congrats. My first was tricky, at 6 mo I prepared her very first foods- organic, gently simmered and lovingly pureed and one by one each gave her terrible rashes. Apples, peaches, pears, everything! She had food allergies and every attempt to feed her made her ill. I allowed her to self-wean at 22 mo when veggies and lamb chops were far more interesting and satisfying for her. The second, however, ate like a champ but still self-weaned at 22 months. Incidentally, my children are 32 months apart.. so nursing kinda worked for us in spacing too. =)

    • March 16, 2014 Alison

      I’m glad it all worked out for you! My boys are about 28 months apart, so that kinda worked out for us too.

  • March 11, 2014 Tamara

    Congrats on this big step! Scarlet weaned herself around 16 months and Des was only 12 months! He probably could have gone longer had I pushed, but I didn’t. And he never asked again. He loooves food. Like…I need to show you a video of how he is around food.

  • March 11, 2014 Living Serenely

    My weaning process with baby #1 was quick and painless too. But now I’m starting to get a little apprehensive when the time comes for baby #2. She is definitely a very different character from her older brother… so now I’m thinking I’d better start getting mentally prepared!

    OMG you are a breastfeeding hero! Let’s see…how long did I breastfeed the twins….oh yeah – 2 weeks!!! It was horribly difficult, I wasn’t producing enough milk and therefore was either feeding a baby or pumping. And, that part about two boys looking the same but acting completely different? Yes, I completely understand that one!!
    Congrats honey. You’re FREE!

    I weaned my little boobie monkeys at 1 year. It was a pretty easy transition for them, and it could have gone faster but I didn’t want to give up the last morning and nighttime feeding. Mostly because I was lazy. I loved bringing them into bed with me in the morning to feed them. And nursing at night was a surefire way to put them to sleep. But once they were completely weaned, I threw a party for me and my boobs. Free at last! And now I have returned to the IBTC (Itty Bitty Titty Committee) for the rest of my days. Hooray!

    I nursed 3 kids for a total of 7.5 years. First went to just over 3 (including through an entire pregnancy and 1 year beyond). I just told her one day, let’s snuggle instead, and she was fine with it. (I think it had gotten to the “hobby” stage for her as well.) Second went to just over 2 (weaned during my third pregnancy). Some sadness one night but then never asked again. (And it hurt to nurse through that pregnancy, whereas the other did not.) Third stopped at just over 3 also. Just didn’t ask one night and fell asleep. Then did the same the next night. By the third night I was ready to call it. Although he did ask again about a week later, minimal dramatics when I told him no. Of course there were times during those 7+ years when I was just ACK! but now that it’s all done I’m like, yeah, whatever, boobs. It was such a short time overall in this whole parenting gig. Thanks for sharing your story.

It took me a few days but I finally got the message. He was interested in real food and had his plush friend for comfort. My boobs were fired. LOL.

  • March 11, 2014 Susanna Leonard Hill

    I breastfed all three of mine, Alison, the first two for 15 months, the last for 16 1/2 months. I had no trouble weaning any of them, just worked our way down to once a day at bedtime and then stopped. With my second I had to on the advice of my OB/GYN because I was expecting my third. The only problem I had was I got Lyme Disease when my youngest was just over 16 months. I was very sick. I started on amoxicillin which had never bothered me, but 10 days in I broke out in terrible hives and had to switch to doxycycline – which meant no nursing. Looking back, I wish I’d realized that missing one day of medicine would be okay. But they always tell you not to interrupt antibiotics, and like I said, I was pretty sick with three kids under 5 to manage. So I switched without missing a dose and never nursed my last baby again. If I’d known the night before was going to be the last night, I would have paid it the attention it deserved. Congratulations to you and Scrumplet for moving on to the next phase πŸ™‚

    I was so thrilled when I got this post in my email this morning and began reading it because of my whole relactation mission…that I no longer want to pursue. I don’t want to go through this- even though I applaud you for nursing this long (hats off), I already went through the weaning process and I don’t want to go through it again. It was relatively easy because Dylan wanted nothing to do with my boobs anymore..but who knows what will happen second time around. My breasts are finally normal again, why do I want to travel back in time? Side note: your photography skills have grown so much since you began your photo challenge! Have you noticed?

    Bravo Alison!! I weaned at 15months but it was almost a fight to the death! I had started by reducing feeds to bedtime or during the night. One night she woke up frustrated and literally sucked me dry. And we were done. Painless and free. Honestly, I missed the bonding, I sometimes still do but damn it was good to wear other clothes that didn’t have to breastfeeding friendly! Your little one is soooo cute!!

    • March 16, 2014 Alison

    Oh girl! I breastfed all three of my girls, but I did not enjoy it. Some moms seem to have this beautiful, bonding experience, but to me it was not very enjoyable. Fortunately, all three of mine weaned themselves pretty painlessly but I remember the freedom I felt. Congrats on a huge milestone!

    I weaned my older son at around 18 months. I felt like it was the right time, we’d gotten down to just one feeding a day, and I had a weeklong work trip to go on. It worked out pretty well, and he wasn’t too insistent on it when I got back. I did let him drink cow milk out of a bottle for a little while to replace that morning feeding, but he was already using sippy cups so that didn’t last too long.

    I nursed my first until 14 months and he weaned easily. We were gradually down to once or twice a day, I was gone overnight for work, and that was it. But my second was a whole different story! He nursed until he was almost 3 and I learned that nursing a toddler is TOTALLY different than nursing an infant. Weaning was a very gradual process with lots of limit setting along the way, because there were points I just needed to set limits so that BF was something I could continue to enjoy too. It probably took us a year – LOL! Glad you have your boobs back. πŸ™‚

    I made it to 8 months with both of my boys – but I had supply issues and I think that was just the point at which my body waved the white flag. Because it was a sort of trickling off for us, it wasn’t very difficult for them – I think it was becoming more frustrating at the end, actually. I would have continued longer, but given the problems we had I am just grateful we had the time we did.

    Ugh it can be so hard, physically and emotionally. The big girls practically weaned themselves. They just lost interest around the one year mark, and that was fine with me. I nursed Zoe to about 18 months, mostly at night at that point, and then I went on a 5 day trip, so that was that.

      It’d be so nice if the boys had weaned themselves. But, I’m glad it’s all done. SO very glad.
