    Somehow, we managed not to nurse this weekend! I think because I got up and out of bed before my DD did.
    But last night I was telling DH about how DD falls asleep now. What we do. I scratch her back and tell her a story. Then she starts rambling on to him about her telling me "I want ma-milks, I want ma-milks, and mommy says no no no and I say I want ma-milks"

    I have 18-mo-old twins that I am starting to wean. I just go to a point and realized, hey, I need sleep. I need to have some say over when I take my shirt off! It's OK for me to say, I don't feel like it right now. We nurse at consistent times every day and this has helped a lot. I just tell my girls "It's not time for milk, it's time for snack/sleeping/stories." If I am firm and consistent and offer an appropriate substitute I feel like I am being fair and they get the message and can move on. They are just learning to say please and it is so hard to tell them no when they look up with their big eyes and say that magic word. Good luck!

    I know what you mean about the word "please" it breaks my heart!!
    Good luck with your weaning. We are getting there slowly.

    Well, we nursed once yesterday. I was kindof hoping to get through the weekend without it and then it would have been 2 weeks since the last time, but I was too lazy to get out of bed earlier on sunday. But yeah, I get a LOT of contractions now when she's nursing and I don't like it. Good thing is, the actual nursing doesn't hurt anymore.

    That's really interesting Katie. I never really got any contractions from the nursing. I stopped nursing 6 weeks before Beatrix was born, 4 weeks before her due date.

    I'm glad it doesn't hurt. You know, Paige, norasmommy - your weaning and hers sound very similar.

    My theory on why I'm having contractions is that I'm not nursing frequently enough for my body to be used to nursing I don't know if that makes sense. But when I was nursing daily I didn't have any, only when the sessions started becoming farther apart then, I started having them. And they get stronger the longer she nurses.

    I'm glad it doesn't hurt either, because I was really getting worried that it was going to hurt nursing the new baby. Like that I'd go into it timid and afraid to nurse him from the start.

    I don't know, it just reminds me of how things went with her and Nora when she talks about it. I'm not sure if she had a weaning thread or not... she weaned Nora during pregnancy and she would go a week or so without nursing, and then nurse again and then one day she hadn't asked to nurse in a long time and Paige knew she was done.

    Oh, ok. Thanks. I was actually wondering when you call weaning. Like, when are they officially weaned. I was thinking that maybe if she hadn't nursed this weekend that maybe that would be it, but also, she DOES still ask to nurse but most of the time I just say no and she's ok with it So it's still on her mind.

    You're taking it slower than I did... I pretty much had to be DONE. I couldn't do it anymore. So, Lilah nursed a few days before Thanksgiving, I guess, and even though she asked to nurse again after that, we were done.

    ETA: She did nurse once after the baby came, but I don't really count that...
