My Mood:
I was tandem nursing my oldest two and pregnant with my third, and decided I wanted to wean my oldest before the baby was born. We were down to nursing only before bedtime at night, and one night I decided to start the dialogue with her about not nursing anymore, so I told her that when she was a baby I nursed her, and now that she's a little girl, soon she won't need to nurse anymore, because she can eat food, drink water, run, jump, etc. (list of big girl things ) And some day we'll be all done nursing and we can just rock before we go to sleep. She thought about it for a minute, then said softly, "I'm a very tiny baby..." I totally thought it was going to take weeks to wean her at that point, but then she snuggled into my shoulder and closed her eyes, so I asked her, "do you want to nurse tonight, or just rock?" "Just rock," she said, and that was that! My milk was basically gone at that point anyway, but I was shocked that she took to it so easily! I hope it works out easily for you and your LO too!
Wife to the love of my life, and Mama to four precious little ones and a baby coming in October!
