I've been writing about my adventures in weaning my almost two year old daughter from da Boob. It's her most favorite thing ever! She gets so excited when I whip that sucker out. She loves it so much that she will volunteer "more boo boo peess mama" (translation - more boob please mama) without any coaching from me. I started the process of weaning her about two weeks ago starting with the middle of the night feedings. Things were going pretty good. By the end of that first week I could say that she was no longer asking for the boob in the middle of the night and I was getting the best sleep since before I gave birth.
Last week I had planned to wean nursing before bedtime but I was scheduled to go to a CLEC course for 8 hours three days that week and I needed sleep. So for two weeks I could say that the middle of the night feedings we successfully gone. As you can guess from the title of this post I made a BIG mistake. Friday, Saturday and Sunday night I feel asleep in Izzy's room putting her to bed. Correction, I feel asleep while I was nursing her before bed. That meant that she had full access to the boob most of the night for those three nights.
Which means that when I tried to get back to my no nursing policy during the night she was PISSED with a capital "P". I felt like I never went through weaning her the past two weeks. Monday and Tuesday night was really hard and I didn't get much sleep. I feel like I'm back at square one. Sigh, I'll get there again soon I hope.
