    Default Where we are...

    Well I thought DD was going to be done nursing right around a year as my supply had tanked and because of daycare, we didn't nurse that often.

    I was WRONG. She's OBSESSED with nursing If I sit in the recliner or even pick her up she is in my shirt...every.single.time. If I don't have the time to nurse her, I don't even pick her up, I make DH hold her. I mean, she went BALLISTIC when I told her "not now" when she tried to get in my shirt.

    She spent Thurs-Sun with my mom out of town and even my mom said that she was adamant about getting in her shirt

    So....we're definitely still nursing here...a lot. At least 5x/day....more if I let her

    She redirected her. Mom said she was fine with it. My mom also has a small hemangioma right between her boobs, and both of my kids have always been fascinated with it...so that might have been part of it.

    I actually managed to escape pumping. DH did his good, husbandly duty, and I took a small dose of domperidone for the 3days before, during, and I've weaned back off as of tomorrow.
