    Default Need some sympathy please!

    Feeling awful with a case of mastitis - chills, painful swollen red breast, achy limbs, generally just feeling miserable and sorry for myself. Got some drugs today some hopefully will improve soon.

    I told my husband I can barely walk around, let alone look after two little kids. While he agreed to take a morning off work to help out, I didn't get any sympathy. Instead I got the whole well if you weaned him you wouldn't have this problem.

    DS turned two last week and still feeds 3-4 times in 24 hours.

    The doctor I saw was very nice, but very surprised I was still feeding him at this age. She asked me did I leave the baby at home when DS and I turned up at the appointment.

    My mum also gave me the whole you should have weaned him a year ago speech. And none of my friends are still feeding.

    All I want is a poor you/hug - well maybe not a hug because that hurts, but a gentle pat on the back. Not the whole why are you still feeding a 2 yo lecture.

    So am pleading for some online sympathy in the hope that will help me feel better!

    oh honey I've had mastitis .. complete with fevers and chills - and I can honestly say I dont ever remember being sicker in my life I could barely get to and from the bathroom on my own - everything hurt!!

    you have my complete sympathy

    having said that - you should feel better pretty quickly if you have the right medication ... hopefully you can at least cope with the kids soon (nothing makes you more intolerant than being sick .. its HARD being a mum when you're unwell )

    I weaned early - but there is no way they should be pressuring them to wean before you or your child are ready. I would be tempted to print off some WHO information and pass it out to those who are in your face about weaning

    take care of yourself ..
    xx

    I've got sympathy for you. And a nice hug from behind on your shoulders

    And in the mean time... Your hubby and mum can shove it up the waazzzoooo! You don't think you might get mastitis while weaning? It happens sometimes. Some women are more susceptible, and in the mean time look at what a brilliant job you're doing for your little one.

    I was feeling a lot of pressure to wean. And I even started to try. The result? My son has a severe allergy to cows milk, so 1 bottle at night and he had sleep apnoea again.
    The funniest thing is, the other day I overheard ladies on the train talking about the benefits of extended feeding and that one of them was still feeding her 3 year old, and had no intentions of stopping, she just didn't tell anyone anymore cause it wasn't worth the stupidity that comes out of peoples mouths.

    You're doing wonderful (and don't forget to take both panadol and neurofen together if you're medically allowed)

    Very very careful hug and a gentle pat....and a sympathetic shoulder. I too have had mastitis and it was just awful.

    Tomorrow will be better
