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!
