My daughter is 21 months and have started to demand breast milk like a new born. I am a working mother, whenever i reach home, she wants to be fed. This demand can come at any place - while traveling, eating in a restaurant, in an event we attending together - just about anywhere. I thought this to be a phase and ignored it but its been almost three months. sometimes she feeds for very long duration just like a newborn would and refuses to accept bottle milk, all she says is mama du du. I planned to breastfeed till she turns 2 but now it gets tiring as well as embarrassing specially in public places when she presses her hand on my chest or tries to lift my top wear. Despite explaining trying to talk calmly yet firmly, telling her that this is not the right place, she just doesn't give in. I seriously need some help in this matter, I understand the benefits of BF and wish to continue at least till she is 2 yrs; however, this behavior is forcing me to think about weaning.nutrition Corner
she wants to spend more time with you and asking for breastfeed for emotional reasons & comfort. When you are going out with her make sure that her stomach is full and if need be breastfeed her just before leaving home. Also continue explaining to her that breastfeeding is meant at home only. Hope it helps.
