My 14 mo is spending more time with a sitter these days, but we're not on a regular schedule. Some days it's 9-1, some 10-1, some not at all.
Yesterday, DS was at the sitter's 9-1, then fell asleep in the car with only a little nursing. DH was able to transfer him to bed and a 1.5 hour nap without me nursing him at all. (Most of his naps have been with me nursing him the entire time.)
Then we were out for the afternoon so he didn't nurse until the evening.
At the end of the day, I found myself weepy and sure that DS is slipping away from me, growing up too fast, I'm a terrible mom and wife -- you know, basic hormonal PMS type feelings and thoughts, except I just finished my period.
I read somewhere that weaning can cause major mood swings like this, and I wondered if maybe the erratic nursing schedule of a toddler could also cause it.
Anyone been here? Please help me feel less crazy.
