Well, it's been just over a week. I cannot believe it. DD is doing ok. She still nuzzles in. The bottle is helpful. It's funny, I never thought of a bottle as a tool to help me continue to breastfeed. If I had, I might have stocked up on frozen milk.
I wish that I could say DD is totally unaffected, but that is not true. Last night she woke up & pretty much screamed. The only thing that calmed her was standing & rocking. When we tried to sit or lay down, she got upset again. DH wound up watching a Teletubbies with her. Finally, they came back to bed, she took a bottle & went back to sleep. The screaming is not normal for her. Her nose has started running & in retrospect, I think that it all got to be a little too much for her--on top of weaning, she's cutting molars & appears to have a cold. Most of the time, she is her normal, content little self.
It means so much to me to have your support. I appreciate the healing thoughts and warm wishes. It really does make a difference.
