I get this way sometimes too. It's not always the same reason. Sometimes I feel like this right before my period, sometimes because of something going on in my life, sometimes for apparently no reason at all.
Yoga, meditation and rigorous exercise help me. Also being outdoors a lot really helps. I have gotten lots of relief from pranayama, breathing exercises. Prayer also helps me.

New moms often have trouble with this. The stress of caring for a baby and not getting enough sleep only make things worse. If you don't have supportive friends and family, now is a good time to make some connections. Mom's clubs are a good start.

I get this way too. sometimes I think it is because I am in a place or something that reminds me of a place where i had a stressful time. I call them flashback anxiety attacks.

Inner, I breastfeed for 12 months. If I hadn't weened her then I would probably still be nursing her. Just slowly do it. Drop one nursing at a time and give him milk in a sippy cup. I did find that Cat didn't like whole milk to begin with. I talked to the pediatrician and he said as long as she was eating cheese and getting enough fats from other areas of her diet it was OK to give her 2% milk.

Hi Tiger!

Inner,
Good for you for breastfeeding for 2 years! This is great, breastfeeding is very good for you and your son. You only need to wean if you are ready. It's okay to nurse as long as you both want.

I breastfed all of my four sons. My first I breastfed for 16 months. The last few months it was just in the morning, at night and at naptime. Then I eliminated the night time nursing by having his dad put him to bed. Next the naptime nursing went. He did not want to nurse at this time because he was very cranky right before nap time. At this time he would scream for a few minutes in his crib before he fell asleep. He did not want to be cuddled, or anything. He would just blow off steam. So it wasn't hard to eliminate that feeding. The morning nursing held on for a while because we both enjoyed the cuddling in the morning. I eliminated that one by just getting out of bed and getting his breakfast instead.

My other 3 kids weaned themselves before I was ready. They were all under a year old. So, there was no intentional weaning there. I was the one who felt deprived.

I'm going camping this week, so I won't respond until next weekend.

Love to you.
