I'm so sorry!!
Every night I am dreaming about going into labor. It's getting kind of ridiculous! I'm only 37 wks so I wish my brain would give me a break from the obsessing.
Dea, what a horrible thing with the potty learning
. We haven't pushed Robin at all -- she has a potty and every once in awhile sits on it, but I don't plan to make a big effort for a few more months. My #1 concern is to keep things positive with these big changes -- toddler bed, potty, etc etc -- so if she's not ready, she at least associates them with good things and hasn't felt forced to do something she didn't want to do.
So far she has napped in her toddler bed a few times and slept in it at night once. She usually asks to go to sleep in the little bed, but is struggling to fully relax and fall asleep there. We're being patient.
Here's something CRAZY: last night for the FIRST TIME EVER, Robin said "byebye nanas" without
nursing and asked for her Dad to give her back rubs instead of nursing to sleep.
I couldn't believe it. It was a welcome relief -- nursing just gets more and more uncomfortable and painful that I can barely let her be on the breast for more than a few minutes. I don't necessarily expect this to become the new pattern, but the fact that it's a possibility at all makes me soooooo happy.
