Biggest Mistake!

I've been writing about my adventures in weaning my almost two year old daughter from da Boob. It's her most favorite thing ever! She gets so excited when I whip that sucker out. She loves it so much that she will volunteer "more boo boo peess mama" (translation - more boob please mama) without any coaching from me. I started the process of weaning her about two weeks ago starting with the middle of the night feedings. Things were going pretty good. By the end of that first week I could say… Continue

I Feel Empowered!

One of the decisions I felt strongly about was breastfeeding my daughter. I had a rocky time of it in the beginning but by the end of the first week I felt like a pro. I was whipping my boob out at her first feeding cues and I've loved every minute of it since. Now that she's approaching the age of two I've decided to wean her from breastfeeding and the process has been a mixture of relief, sadness, stress, frustration and exhaustion. I have never thought twice about breastfeeding and I still… Continue

Hubby Dropped the Ball

When I started my journey to wean Izzy a week ago I was anticipating less sleep than I was getting. The first few days wasn't too bad. I was seeing progress so I was more than willing to go through the day more on the tired side as long as I kept seeing improvements. By the fifth night I the lack of sleep was getting to me. Even though Izzy was able to get some sleep I wasn't from spending most of my night in That Blasted Chair. I was irritated and some (okay most) of the frustration was… Continue

SCORE!

Last night was the best one yet. I hope I don't jinx myself. We had the same bedtime routine, milk, snack, diaper change and a story before bedtime. She had a little bit of nursing and was out in about 10 minutes. The only time she woke up was for about 5 minutes around 11:45pm because she was cold. After a little bit of back rubbing and a warm blanket she was fast asleep until 4am.

Choices

This past week I've been focused on one thing. No, that's not entirely accurate. My focus with Izzy has been on one thing. My goal is to wean her completely from nursing. She is turning two the second week of September and I would like for her to no longer be nursing for any amount of time by then. That might be an unreasonable deadline so at the very latest before we relocate to WA in October.…

Step Back or Forward?

Last night was my fourth night at weaning Izzy from the middle of the night nursing. On the third night there was no crying or asking for the boob she just had a little trouble falling back to sleep. I was hoping, praying and crossing my fingers that last night would be at least the same or better. I was sadly mistaken. I recently put my foot down to wean Izzy by her second birthday which is less than a month away. The only times she nurses is before bed, before a nap and during the night. You… Continue
