[ - ] I'm looking for serious advice on how to stop breastfeeding. La Leche tells me to keep going; normal mom friends tell me to just stop. DS is 19 months. He is extremely demanding when he sees me -- it's impossible to say no. I work FT so I'm gone most of the day, but as soon as I come home, in the mornings and in he middle of the night, it's boob time. Weekends too. I have gone away for 3 days at a time, and didn't pump, but as soon as I got back, it was back to the boob. I am really fat, really tired, and need to do something. I never ever offer the boob btw. I had thought if you stop offering, they stop asking. Not the case here. 4 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

No, past a certain age they will ask even if you don't offer. I think the older the child is the more difficult. When my dc was 14 months I just started saying that my breasts(I used our own word) needed to rest. No more milk from the breast. It sounds like with this child you will have to be firm. You can be kind, DC might cry, but you sound TIRED of breastfeeding. Don't feel guilty-19 months is a long time! [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Every night it's the same boring tiring routine. Get home, make either chicken nuggets with pasta or Mac and cheese. DH and I eat cereal. Fight with DH (with nasty looks and loud sighs) on who is cleaning up / who is bathing / how much tidying of toys should get done / should I throw in the laundry. Yell at kids to go to bed -- it's 9:30pm before we know it. DH goes to the bathroom for his massive poop, stinks up the entire living room. I try to take a shower and relax, after logging on for work, paying bills, making lists, getting ready for tomorrow, only to get to bed around 11pm, and have my one year old wake up at 1am demanding the boob. I'm 30 pounds overweight, gray hair, frumpy and so so so tired. How do I get out of this awful routine? 41 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Sunday: Roast 1-2 chickens. (Cut lemon & a whole garlic in half and shove in the cavity; pour 1/4 a stick of butter over the top; roast on 400 for 1 hr.) Have sunday dinner with rice and a steamed veggie. Get the kids to help you remove meat and store in container. Take the bones and the lemon and the garlic and some carrots and fill a stock pot with water. Make stock. Cook on low all night of 4-6 hours. Monday: make veggie soup. Add some chicken, carrots, potatoes, green beans and the stock you made the night before. If you want thick soup, take a bit of stock and dissolve flour in it and pour into soup. Tuesday: Tacos with leftover chicken. Add mild salsa and spices to chicken. Make a taco bar; have the kids help. Serve with black beans and a crisp salad. [ Reply | More ]

first of all, can you get help or go part time? This life sounds unsustainable for you. Also, you and your family eat terribly. Don't you cook any real food? I would suggest making some nice meals over the weekend and freezing and having your menu for the week preplanned and shopped for so that you know what you are making (hopefully something healthier and more well balanced than what you are currrently doing). Have a family meeting and enlist help of dh and kids. My 7 yo helps me stem the beans, etc and generally helps me get dinner on the table faster. You could even cook with dh with a glass of wine and discuss day. In terms of the baby, that will get better. [ Reply | More ]

OK, I could have posted this it's so close to my life. Same food for kids all the time and right now I'm eating cereal for dinner! I have 1 yo DC, but also a toddler and 6 yo. Older DCs watch TV/Ipad through most of the night routine. Oh well it's survival mode. I'll tell you what's help keep me from getting sleep deprived and overweight. I let baby cry it out around 12 months. No more midnight boob. It worked very quickly. At that age it's not about hunger. Second, I do whatever possible to have quick healthy meals around, even if it's take out salads or vegan meal delivery. Any kid junk food must be single serving pouches or DO NOT buy it. Finally, DH works late and even when he is around for the routine he doesn't help in any meaningful way. I've stop expecting it and thus less tension. [ Reply | More ]

Like I said, obviously there are some, but people start settling down in their late 20s (at which time many have been dating for a couple of years). Obviously there aren't as many good single prospects around as a result. I have awesome friends who are mid-30s and have never met the right guy, but they are in the minority. I'm 32 and probably 80% of my friends are married (to people they started dating in their 20s, for the most part). [ Reply | More ]

I don't know what to tell you - we have different friends. Of my closest boarding school friends, 8/12 are married. Of my college friends, after this summer, the vast majority will be married. Very few have kids, but most are married. At 28, it was probably more like 10%, but many people had commenced the relationships that would eventually culminate in marriage. [ Reply | More ]

And then he will be made redundant at 40 and will be unemployable for the rest of his life. I mean, it's fine as long as he saves while the going is good, but he better not be thinking that this gravy train goes on forever. Also, you are gross OP. [ Reply | More ]

No. I'd much prefer that to a bobble-headed 24yo with the sort of career that requires her parents or husband to pay rent. Even outside this false dichotomy, it wouldn't bother me. 10 is maybe a little thick, but not overweight per se. And my brother married a woman 9 years older and she's awesome, so that doesn't bother me either. [ Reply | More ]

Well he either prefers her to the women who have these qualities, or he wasn't able to catch one and therefore perhaps his status isn't quite what you think it is. Either way, he has agency in this situation and he chose her. and if you think he hasn't noticed yet that she isn't svelte and he will suddenly realise this and be disappointed, you don't think very highly of his intelligence.

Okay, so she is wildly successful then (maybe not by distorted UB standards, but I think that most of us can agree that her pedigree and professional accomplishments are extremely impressive).

I was speaking from my experience, as I said. I also have never actually seen Scandal so it's possible that wasn't the example I wanted haha. Was trying to think of someone who was professionally successful and unapologetic about it without having to compensate by appearing weak or girlish (like Ally McBeal or someone), but who was also cool and feminine. Tragically, it's not easy to come up with an example of someone like this from pop culture! [ Reply | More ]

Have him wait 5 years. He can do better. If she's fat before even conceiving, she's going to completely bloat up after marriage. It will be like being married to a beach whale. Entirely unattractive and morally disheartening. [ Reply | More ]
