Re: When don't offer don't refuse isn't working
Don't feel bad about being ready to wean your older child! If I was tandeming a new baby and a demanding toddler, I'd want to wean, too!
Do you have family that can come and help you out while you make changes in the nursing pattern? When I cut out DD's morning feed, it was totally mother-led. We were at my parents' place and I would just send her down stairs every morning to play with grandma while I lounged around in bed. After a few mornings of no nursing, DD just stopped asking for morning milkies, because she's dropped the habit. (Well, mostly stopped. When she was sick, or feeling extra-needy, she picked it back up.)
Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"
