Thank you for the update. Your family is still in my thoughts.
Hi all, i can certainly identify with this situation. It can drive me a little crazy sometimes. I'm TRYING to be more careful and aware of not blaming my DH for this .... I sort of directed all my frustration at him at first when my son started insisting I do most things... I blamed him for not being me mainly. Anyway ... that really wasn't helpful to the situation. It a tough one ... Developmental for us too. I really liked the above posts . Best of luck.

We started to read it often for 3 weeks before we started night weaning and quite incredibly (in my opinion), my son has transitioned to only getting one...
P.s. what I've gained so far: - a new perspective on life and my priorities, - significant personal growth & greater confidence, - more wisdom, - a beautiful and very deep relationship with my DS
