DD is night weaned!!! I am so pumped. It was a huge bummer for her for about 2-3 nights and now she's totally okay with it. "No nummies in bed" (she sleeps with us) is my new phrase and she seems to get it. I am happy.
During the day, however, she's pretty much attached to me! She sees my but hit a chair and she is ON ME. Seriously, I'm afraid to sit down because I know she'll want to nurse! And she will NOT be postponed or distracted. Uh uh. Thankfully my nipples aren't sore, but I have pretty much no milk and she wants to jump back and forth between the two sides like every 30 seconds. "Other side" has become her new mantra.
I don't know if it's because I don't have much milk, or because her latch has changed, or what, but sometimes I just can NOT handle the sensation of her nursing! I just get this whole body creepy-crawly sort of thing going on and feel like I need to jump up and run away! Anyone else know what I'm talking about? Not really pain, but like a shivery heeby-jeeby feeling? It's hard to explain, but it doesn't feel good.
Other than that, I'm feeling fine with all the nursing. Having the night weaning done is huge. Sleep.... where have you been the last 5 years?? I've missed you, my friend!
