Aimee now totally weaned from BF



It’s been exactly 1 week that I had stopped Aimee from breastfeeding. I feel sad and plaintive seeing her asking for it sometimes. I remembered last time how I was so determined to bf Aimee when I first got to know that I was pregnant. But in the end, I only managed to fully bf her until she was 1 year and 4 months, and have to totally stop bf her last week where she's only1 year 7 months and 8 days. I feel so pity to her that I can’t give her anymore. Mama so sorry sayang… Mama has to stop you right now. I don’t have the milk to feed you anymore. Sigh…

Actually, I started feel the pain while bf her on last Sunday. But still I tried to bf her and hoping that the pain will go away and heal by itself after 2 or 3 days. Then, on Monday, the pain gets worse. So, at night I tried to persuade Aimee to use bottle before she get into bed. Unfortunately she was reluctant and still demanding me to bf her to get her into sleep. And as a result, she didn’t get enough sleep that night because she suddenly rejecting to accept the Dutch Lady milk that I usually give her when she wake up for feeding at night. Maybe she just shocked when I say that she cannot bf anymore. So, to entertain her need that night, I myself have to bear with the pain while she sucking my nipple every time. Ouch! It is seriously so painful!

After failed in persuading her to not bf, I tried again the next day. And, to persuade a toddler, for sure you need to come out with a reason on why she need to do that and this.. In my case, I frankly told her that I’m having a sore nipple while she bf. Due to that, she has to stop bf and have to use bottle to get to sleep at night or where never she need her milk. At first, she looks upset and insisted to bf with me. Then hubby came plays his role and says this “Cicu mama sakit. Mama kena jumpa doctor. Doktor kena inject cicu mama” After hearing that from her Ayah, then only she agreed to use her bottle rather than bf with me.. Alhamdulillah…. At the same time, I also still feel so sad that I can’t bf Aimee while she demanding for it. But, I then soothe and convince myself that He knows well what’s the best for us. So, I shouldn’t be regretting in what He had decided for me and Aimee. For what ever reason, I should be grateful for the opportunity that I've been given to bf Aimee for the past 1 year and 7 months ago. He even made the process of stopping easier for me. I don’t have to force nor gets angry and yell at her to ask her to stop. With only 1-2 days persuading, she finally willingly to cooperate with us and seems to understand the problem that we are facing. Alhamdulillah…

So after 1 week of bottling, maybe some of you wondering on how are we putting Aimee into bed at night. To be honest, for the 1st 2-3 days, we did face the problem where she didn’t want to go to sleep. She became so cranky and asking for lot of things, and only goes to bed when she really tired of playing and demanding that and this. But, after 4-5 days, she herself gets use to the new routine and will ask for her bottle where never she feel sleepy. And after struggling for the past 1 week, I really feel that all the hard work now has been paid off. Aimee now comfortable with the new arrangement, hubby still trying in helping me to wake up at night to entertain Aimee’s needs, and I myself now recovering from the sore nipple and I think everybody happy with the new routine and maybe ready to welcome our new member in our family insya Allah… I feel so blessed, alhamdulillah!

So sorry sayang... Mama can't bf you anymore =(


But, remember this, Mama always love you! And it will never end... And no words can describe how much Mama love you baby!
