i think my 29 mo dd is weaning! i'm in shock!!! she LOVES her nursies more then anything (last week she wanted to nurse instead of eating ice cream!!!) i'm happy for her and kindof wanted this (i'm nursing a 5 mo as well), but... i'm sad too. it's bittersweet. i guess i'm going to have alot of these moments in my kids lives, huh? i lost my milk during pg with ds, since the baby's birth, she's not liked the idea that there's something coming out of my breasts. if she sees the milk come out, she'll look at it like "ewww! yuck!" and say "i don't like milk", but she loves nursing so much, she nursed anyway. well yesterday, she said, "i don't like nursies... i don't like milk. i don't want to nurse ". at first i was like "what?! yes you do" but she felt bad and i could tell this was hard for her, so i said "it's ok, honey, that's why mommy has other things for you to drink. and mommy doesn't have to nurse you for you to be close to mommy. i could hold you, hug you, cuddle with you, kiss you... lots of other things." last night was the first time in her little life she did not nurse to sleep! then this morning, she wanted a cup of milk instead of nursing! (can you tell i'm still in shock?!) she keeps coming up to me and saying "i don't want to nurse" i keep reassuring her that it's ok to feel this way. she's been more clinging then usual, so I've been giving lots of hugs today. i feel like i want to cry! (ok, i already did!) thanks for listening!
take care!
