Sooo tired of breastfeeding


I've had three babies in the last 5 years and I've breastfed them all but I'm nursing an 8 month old that's getting 3 teeth and not sleeping.. I'm just plain tired... idk how I'm going to keep going...

You've done so well but I totally appreciate how you must be feeling. Hang in there, the end is in sight (you just can't see it through your sleepy, blurry, bloodshot tired eyes )

Wow! You're doing a great job! I thought I was tired and I'm only three months in my first! Pretty through it, if you can.

Yeah I'm really tired of breastfeeding. I was hoping to stop at 12 months and not go any further but it's so difficult to wean. He still wakes 2-3 times through the night to feed

My first breastfed till 2 and be only started sleeping through once we stopped!

I totally understand the feeling. I have a love hate relationship with breastfeeding. My DD will be 9 months on Friday and I am just like I have 3 more months..I can do this!!!

My issue is having to pump while she is at daycare..if I could not pump I dont think I would mind so much. Its getting more difficult to pump what she drinks at daycare too. Thank goodness I have always had a deep freezer stash!

Hang in there because we all have come so far!!!!1

I understand the feeling. I've been breastfeeding over 4 years straight now, 2 kids (one finally weaned completely on his 4th birthday!) Just nursing one now, but another on the way, I keep thinking if I nurse the current one as long as the first, that is two more years. If I nurse the new baby as long as the first, that is over 4 years from now. BF'ing for 8 years straight....It's an overwhelming thought.
