oh come on I would think I could get *some* sort of answer, some sort of show of support as I'm figuring this out....I love the concept in theory, having seen a few friends' kids CLW, this is my first personal mommy experience with it. (DS was pumped-for for six months as I tried everything I could find to get him nursing, nothing ended up working and I finally chose to spend more time with my baby as I WOH back then and it was starting to upset him to have me there, but not.)
I guess we are, or something. DD is 26 months tomorrow. DS2 just turned 4 months the 7th.
She nursed to put me into labor.
literally the first time she'd nursed more than a minute or two in a couple weeks and it did it.
In the months since DS's birth, she has very occasionally asked to nurse and nursed a minute tops, then announced "done!" put my bra back together (
) and either snuggled or left.
in the past few days, it's been more like a daily request, and she's stayed with it for a few minutes. But just that once a day when it is me and her--brother is at school, dad is asleep, grandma is not back from taking brother to school.
the rest of the time she is too busy.
Anyone else been here?? Is my kid un-weaning? Is she testing me to see what she can do while nursing? I know the obvious thing is she wants it because baby brother has it and gets tons of attention with it. (her view, of COURSE she is allowed to snuggle on the other side of me and have some attention while he nurses!)
I guess maybe she *IS* 'unweaning' and has decided to tandem with baby brother LOL...she has switched the morning for an evening though. She's too busy the rest of the day to think of it. She's added a couple cute nursing games and has accepted my limit of "if you play with it, you're done" (things that she was doing that I found painful/annoying) "cute" stuff like when she pops off to tell me she's drinking milk, or "there's a spider on you" and proceeds to pretend to get rid of a spider on the nipple, LOL--those games are fine, I think they're funny.
tonight she told me "I'm drinking milk" and that it tastes good....oh and that everybody on Sesame Street drinks boo....she started with Cookie Monster, then went on to name everyone and say that they like "boo" LOL Then my 4 year old chimed in with "Abby Cadabby does NOT drink boo." when I asked him why, he said "because she flies" loooooooool
