One Down and One to Go

Weaning

One Down and One to Go…..I have dropped the morning nursing session.  This was usually around 5:30am and Coen would sometimes go back to bed for 30-60 min after.  The day I dropped it he slept straight until 6:15 so I decided it would be a good chance to do it.  He did great! I offered him water and then he played for a bit and then he ate breakfast.  The second day he slept a little later again and seemed to go with it.  The third morning (a Monday) he was a screaming mess at 5:30 and my husband went in to offer some water.  He drank a little, settled down but then started fussing again.  He was cranky the entire morning until I brought him to daycare.  He has been extra clingy and huggy with me.  I feel awful.  I am not sure if it is the drop of our morning session, the change in schedule, a cold, the upper teeth that seem to never come or his constipation/belly issues but it’s so hard to see him like this.  I know with any transition time will only help.  I am going to give it some time before we drop the dreaded nighttime session.  Last week for the first time in forever he actually fell asleep while I nursed him before bed.  Something I will always miss…….

One thought on “One Down and One to Go

  1. Weaning is heart breaking isn’t it!? I mourned it for sure. My toddler only recently started to slow down enough to give me snuggles here & there, otherwise she’s always go go go!
