Re: What does nursing look like....

OH yeah, and in the morning when she's all drowsy, she likes to "rest" her teeth on the top of my nipple.

OUCH. I've got scabs.

Re: What does nursing look like....

The sweet moments of snuggly breastfeeding have transformed into acrobatics, top teeth dents in my nipple, hands in my mouth, getting my face patted He's just over 11 months and I think we're both gradually moving towards weaning. Even though ds isn't big on his sippy, he seems to think he's far too busy to nurse. Let down takes too long for him and he is bfing for much shorter amounts of time but the same frequency/day. My period came back and I can no longer eat like a fiend and not gain any weight , so he must be taking less.
I have mixed feelings about it. In some moments I'm sooo ready to be done and in others I am so sad that pretty soon he'll be weaned.

Re: What does nursing look like....

technically I won't be nursing a 1-year-old til next week, but I figured y'all wouldn't mind if I answer anyway.

I work part-time so on the days I'm home it's about every 3 hours. He gets 2 bottles while I'm working and we nurse as soon as I get home.

He eats very little food for me, but eats decent amounts for grandma. The ped is after us to nightwean but I don't think so

ETA My guy is a pincher. I have bruises on the backs of my arms and the tops of my breasts. He also pulls his own hair while nursing.
