After disappointingly being unable to breastfeed my first baby, because she refused to do so i was very happy to find that my second baby latched on right away , I thought to myself, hmm i will start giving her bottle in between breastfeeding sessions so i cant start going back to work soon... yeah that didnt happen , she refused the bottle every time. so i figured well as soon as she start solids maybe she will cut down on the boob... well she loves food, she'll take juice , water, and milk from a cup but still cries for the boob as much as a a new born baby does..i cant seem to wean her no matter what ...she is now 17 months old and shows no signs of stopping any time soon. Its very frustrating because i dont think im producing enough milk fast enough and she'll sit there sucking on an empty boob and i hate it. Just last night before putting her down she emptied me out and still wanted more. I handed her to daddy because i just couldnt and she ended up crying till she threw up!! I need help!! shes so attached to my boobs sometimes instead of calling me mommy she calls me chichi ,spanish for boob.

haha sounds like my 14mth old, i just roll with it, maybe its a growth spurt, chances are u have enough milk and make more as she sucks, but i know its very draining, make sure u drink tonnes of water, start getting her to sleep with breastmilk in a bottle to allow urself time to chill out and relax, thats what im starting to do, hes going in his own bed by 2 ive said to myself,
