so bored with night nursing!
this is far more of a winge than a serious complaint but jesus something's got to give! he barely feeds in the day, sometimes at nap time but not if we're out or daddy's in charge (obviously), just at night. the frustration is getting a bit much. i think i'd manage it better if it were consistent but sometimes it's 1-2 times for weeks then we'll get a 4-5 times a night week and i just can't hack it! i need a proper night's sleep, i would love to let his incredibly eager grandparents take him for a night, some sense of privacy in the whole boob area would make a great difference to my sense of self. i think if i'm honest with myself, we're probably not far off weaning completely and it's just cumulative stress building up making me want to quit at the last leg of the journey. i've let him guide me in this but am aware that from maybe 8-9 months i've not been entirely in the nursing relationship. i don't believe in crying it out, i know he'll sleep through eventually, i know he will wean especially as he is happy not to feed in the day. i'm kinda thinking that this winter is the time to make a concerted effort to wean if i want to lead it as that's when our life is most settled (no big trips or major changes planned). just tired really and needing to complain!
