My DD and I have enjoyed a long nursing connection...
I'm 18 weeks pregnant with #2- and I guess my milk went away.
Now how do we fall asleep? :-)
My breasts have been really sore and tender- so I've been limiting her time at night- she has been rolling over to Daddy to snuggle the past week. I think she knew the milk was gone.
Last night I asked her if we could just snuggle to fall asleep- she said some really mean words, ran off and cried, then came back and snuggled with me. it was very powerful to see her go through those emotions. I'm still teary-eyed. I know transitions are hard- and necessary in life.
Any advice on how to keep that strong bond/connection- after the nursing has ended would be appreciated.
WOW! all my emotions about nursing are enough...not to mention being pregnant! LOL
Thank you for being here, Mommas. I know you understand.
