    Default Weaning Update!!!

    I've been such a waffler on weaning, lol. In my mind I want Logan to wean but then when it starts happening I start on this emotional roller coaster and think I'm doing the wrong thing.

    Then all of the sudden, it's like I'm ready.

    He's night weaned. We nurse down for nap time and bedtime, and I would say about 2 other times. So I think we're nursing about 4-5 times a day. This is way down from 10-12 times a day which was his norm for a very long time.

    And I feel SO good about this. My mom kept telling me that I would know in my heart when it was time to make some changes. I didn't understand but now I do.

    I'm not sure how long we'll hold onto these last few nursing sessions, I'm not pushing him but just letting it happen naturally. We're heading down to Florida for a few weeks and Logan will be around his preschooler cousin the whole time. I'm hoping that distraction will lend itself nicely to weaning a bit more!!!!

    Okay thanks for reading, just had some thoughts I wanted to get out there about our nursing. It's hard to believe that we're at this stage already.

    Way to go - it sounds like you're in a good place and keep reminding yourself of the huge accomplishment for nursing despite lots of challenges.

    Keep us posted with how it goes ...

    you probably already know this b/c I've mentioned it before, but going away and traveling helped us BIG time. I think i wouldnt be surprised if Logan weaned almost completely by the time you get back!

    So we're down in Florida and we started out with a 3 day nursing strike because Logan got sick. And he's all better, but he's so busy he doesn't ask to nurse unless it's after 5 PM and he's winding down.

    He's eating so much food it's amazing, and I know that he's going to do great with the rest of our weaning experience. He's very attached to those evening nursies right now so I'm not going to push.

    Yay for weaning slowly and with love.

    Yeah I'm stressing a bit.... I posted about this on FB but Jason's wedding band won't be here in time and I was pretty upset about it. Little things here and there aren't going 'exactly' as planned and I'm just trying to remain very flexible about everything ya know.
