My goal was one year. At 9 and 11 weeks I still despised, loathed, abhored - you name it, wanted no part of this nursing thing. By four months I almost called it quits. By five months, I became tolerant, and by six months I was hooked. Now, at one year, I don't think either one of us wants to stop. I can't even believe I made it. Thank you to all the ladies out there that helped me make it!!!! I am so exhausted. My little one has only slept through the night once. He still gets up for a midnight feeding. I have adjusted to the lift-up and roll-over, half-awake/sleep that I consider my sleep. However, I thought he would start nursing less, and in the last few days he has seemed to regress. Today, he nursed almost every two hours all day - and pretty close to that yesterday too.
What do I do? I don't know how I feel about giving him water. He gets very upset when I just try to cuddle instead of nurse. They eventually wean themselves don't they???????
Open to suggestions - and I am in grad school and work full time, so . . . I unfortunately don't have time to read any more!
Thanks again for all the help ladies!
