Oh mama's.<br><br>
I'm thrilled to report that a lightswitch went off in Noah's head. He's decided that he no longer needs to nurse in the am. We are now only nursing 1x a day. He's decided that he likes to bottle nurse and it's okay to touch my breasts, and it doesn't make him want to nurse from them. He's also realized he doesn't need to nurse to sleep or have it be an all out crying fit. He now lays down with me, closes his eyes and sucks his paci.<br><br>
I can't begin to tell you how much relief this gives me and dh. I feel so ready to finally take care of myself, knowing Noah is okay...

I'm glad things are working out for him and you. What a wonderful gift you were able to give him by nursing as long as you have.
