Feeling touched out

I just feel so bad for feeling this.

When my dd nurses I just feel icky, and touched out. Lately it seems all she wants to do is nurse, and nurse for long periods of time. When it gets to 20 min or so at a time on the same side, it gets bothersome...... KWIM?

Many moms feel this way at some point. Hang in there. Maybe you could ask your dh to watch the children while you take 15 minutes for YOU. It's amazing what some "me" time can do for your spirits.

Just think...a few months ago it was a struggle to get your dd latched. Maybe she is making up for lost time!Click here to enlarge

I can relate - except I don't want dh to touch my breasts. Kiddo is ok. When DH tries, I just want to scream "I get enough stimulation there in one day to last me a lifetime!"

I've felt the same way at times. I don't like DH anywhere near my breasts.

I felt that way for a long time. The worst is when my dh would want to fool around and I just felt like wearing a sign that said "shop closed" around my neck.

When I feel like that I try to make our nursing sessions good for me - like laying down, watching TV or reading a book (small paperback works best). That way she can get in her long sessions and I don't feel like i"m just waiting for her to finish.

(I just thought I could change this post quite a bit by changing "she" to "he" and make it about sex!) so sad, I have no drive right now!

I have not drive either, we have had sex 2 times since she was born.

I try to get in to a good position and make it relaxing.

My drive came back at 13 mos. I was starting to think it would never come back.

Does your dd like to rock/play/walk around the block with your dh? That has been my respite from that touched out feeling. I'd feed her until she was nice and full and the hand her off and be AWAY from her for a little while, even just in the next room.

I also watched a lot of TV when she was still nursing 20 minutes at a time Click here to enlarge

Not to much of handing off is going to happen in the next 2 months for sure. Seeding has started and he is working 16 hour days.

I think that is why all of a sudden this has started to bother me, knowing that there is not a bunch of relief.

I so hear you. My dh has been working a LOT lately and I am alone quite a bit with the kids. Vivian is pretty fussy, fights sleep tooth and nail and is quite the velcro monkey -- she cries/whines if she can't see me. She doesn't really nurse all that much during the day though, but come the middle of the night and she is up a bazillion times a night nursing. I am so freaking exhausted. I think I have permanent dark circles under my eyes and I've had a headache for nearly 2 months!

I go through this every couple of months. Of course, when I'm feeling like this she wants to have marathon nursing sessions.

It will pass.
