Weaning & The End of My Breastfeeding Journey

It is almost 2 weeks now, I stop breastfeeding Arsyad. Alhamdulillah, I never thought that it will be this easy. I did try few times before this but he refused to stop and I can't be patience enough hearing him shouting, crying and kicking especially in the middle of the night. But this time around, Alhamdulillah Allah makes it easier for me and him.

So, how I did it? I put a lot of nescafe to my breast. I mix it with water a bit so that it will be sticky and when I applied it on my breast, it looked very ugly and scary. Haha. Thanks to yana for the tip. :D I just showed to him once, then he immediately didn't want my milk anymore. He was so shocked and ran away. Hehe. Yup, he will ask for it once in a while, but he will understand when I said "mama sakit". And Alhamdulillah he didn't wake up at night and didn't ask for his milk anymore. He just cried a bit sometimes then will fall asleep after that. He even can sleep on his own now, no need mama or papa besides him. :-)

The only problem that I have so far is to make him drink formula milk. He did drink his full cream milk, but refused to drink his formula milk. But these few days, he started to drink his formula milk eventho he didn't finish even a bottle. Hopefully, he will get use to it coz I don't want him to stop drinking milk. Doesn't matter formula milk or fresh milk. As long as he still wants it.

So that's it. Alhamdulillah, I managed to breastfeed him till he is 2 years and 2 months old. I'm glad that I  managed to go through all the challenges and hopefully I can do the same with my other children. InsyaAllah. :-)

  9. Bestnya jue dpt fully bf 2 tahun. Aku ni pn dh 2 weeks tak direct bf kt Amsyar. Umur tak masuk 8 bulan lagi. Dia sendiri yg reject. Puas paksa, sua kt dia, siap nangis2 tanak bf. Dia selesa ngn botol. So skrg dh campur fm. Tapi still mengepam, bagi minum ikut botol. Syg nak stop bagi susu badan. Tapi tu la, tak tau sampai bila aku bleh bertahan utk mengepam saje. Tak larat nak pam 3 jam sekali. Huhu.. Sedey sgt masa mula2 dia reject bf, rasa mcm baby menjauhkan diri dari kita. Huhu..

    Panjang plak komen. Kira luahan perasaan skali la ni. Hehe..
