    I just saw someone on Facebook say they have a pounding headache and are really thirsty and drinking water isn't helping to quench the thirst. Someone pipes up that she should go straight to hospital. I may be wrong but I don't think feeling thirsty and having a headache requires a visit to hospital quite so soon. I think it requires a panadol and maybe some hydralite and more fluids instead. This BTW is a person who:
    Cold=flu
    Headache=migraine
    Ingrown toenail=omg I'm gonna lose a toe!

    This happened to a friend of mine recently. My friend had kept her pregnancy mostly off FB - no announcement or anything. Most people only found out when she uploaded photos from her baby shower. The kicker, the person who made the announcement wasn't even a friend, she was one of the girls who works on administration at work. So wrong. Both my friend and her husband were pi$$ed off. Even when the post was deleted off my friends wall, this chick posted the announcement again. I've seen this floating around FB and asked my friend if she wanted it posted to her wall lol.

    I'll be damned if I can work out how to wean dd. It hurts my head. 75% of me thinks it would be a good idea to go away and leave her and the boys with mum for 2 nights and come back and say "no boob!". It's how I weaned the boys and it was easy and successful.
    But I definitely can't ask mum to do that for me. So.. We just keep the status quo? I know the older she gets the more she understands and so it will gradually get easier.. But I'm ready to end now. I'm ready to reclaim my body, to hopefully have her start sleeping through, ready to sleep in my own bed. Basically I'm ready to move on from being a mother with a young baby to being a mother with young children.
    I just. Can't. Work. Out. How.

    Ask your mum! Go away with your DF for a night or 2. Come back and voila!
    And if not, you had a couple of nights away!

    Nomsie I feel your pain about weaning was coming on here to have vent about how difficult it is! DS2 is 19 months (similar to your DD from memory) and I started to try and wean him yesterday. This isn't our first attempt. I've been pregnant and breast feeding for 4.5 years-feed DS1 while I was preg with DS2 and I'm done! I'm working two nifty shifts over the weekend so hoping that will help. If your mum can have your boys and DD I say go for it!

    Why can't you ask your mum that?

    Have you tried anything yet?

    ETA: My friend is worked with the "don't offer but don't refuse" method. She never offered him (2) a bf, but if he asked she would't say no.
    After 2 weeks of that, she dropped the morning feed- she would get up before him and shower/dress and have his breakfast ready. As there was an alternative readily available he usually took it. If he refused and asked for a bf, she would say, "Oh but your breakfast is here and mummy is dressed and ready to go out now. I'm just waiting for you." then she would take him out for even 15 minutes. Anything to distract him from the bf. After a few days he stopped asking for it.
    She's working on dropping the afternoon one now, in pretty much the same manner- starting back at "don't offer but don't refuse" and will then distract.

    I don't want to ask mum because she already does a lot for me. I don't want to push it.

    A big part of the problem is that dd still feeds a lot overnight. As in, around midnight I get in bed with her and god knows how long and how often she feeds. I certainly don't. But it's a lot.

    Have I tried? Yes. Several times. Starting when she was 15 months. She is nearly 18 months now. As I type this I'm heading into her room to feed her again- the third time since she was put to bed because its effective in ensuring she goes straight back to sleep. I have tried no overnight feeds but she is so determined and she screams. A lot. Loudly. And wakes everyone up. It's not cool when her brothers have to go to school.
    I've tried don't offer don't refuse. To make up for me not offering, she started asking for more. I've tried distraction. Sometimes it works. Every other time it results in meltdown. I've tried offering alternative. Water. Water in a pretty cup. Water in a big girl cup. Milk. Warned milk. Hot milk. I even let her try some milo.
    Like I said- she is stubborn and knows what she wants.
