I realized, sadly, over the last few weeks that things are changing with my baby and how often he nurses. i was hoping to gain some perspective from other moms of toddlers on where you are in the grand scheme and how you feel about it.
Right now Silas wakes on his own on weekends and any other time i don't have to leave for work, on those days he only nurses first thing in the AM about 1 of every 5 mornings. on the Days when I have to leave for work I also have to drop him at the sitters house, right now i still wake him up when I first wake up and we cuddle and nurse for about 20 minutes total in a daybed in his room. I wonder if I am pressuring him kind of because it's how I get him to wake up. should i just wake him and attempt to dress him instead of scooping him up and getting into bed with him?
Naps: at the sitters he naos wonderfully without me but alas if I am home and we aren't in the car he will not nap without the boob, I wish this were different.
Bedtime: he actually has fallen asleep a few times sitting in my lap watching TV, once watching ET, once the Golden Compass, and finally a Harry Potter flick otherwise we sit in my chair and he brings me the boppy to nurse or on ocassion he'll direct me to his room to cuddle in the daybed and nurse to sleep instead.
he hardly, if ever, asks otherwise, unless I'm being lazy on the couch and he wants to snuggle up
so that's where we are please share where you are if you don't mind ladies
