I really don't want to wean Winter yet, but her sleep is getting worse and worse lately. Scarily similar to my pregnancy sleep. I called up a LC today, and she confirmed that my hormones are in the milk, that the milk is changing, and she has become this way because of it. Sucks! I really wanted to nurse till 18 months, minimum.

Starting today I've cut out all comfort nursing. Wake up, nap, and bedtime nursing only. I haven't made up my mind about the nighttime sessions yet. I like my sleep, and nursing her gets her to sleep quickly. Maybe I'll have a sippy ready to go.

Next week we're cutting out nap nursing. The week after no morning nursing. After that we'll nurse every 36 hours. I should be pretty dry after that.

Hope it goes well for you! Allegra is now completely weaned. I wanted to nurse longer but I ended up needing to be put on a medication for my thyroid. Weaning went easier than I expected; I think because she was already night weaned by the time I fully weaned her.

I'm sorry, Arwen. Robby weaned himself when I ovulated the first time and I was devastated, so I know how hard it is. But I am enjoying the freedom now, lol! Pretty soon you'll have another go at 18 months, lol!

How's your pregnancy going?

It's good! I felt almost normal up until yesterday. Waited to long to eat, and then ate the wrong thing. Acid reflux came back full force, and it is still kicking my butt today.

Feeling the baby move for the past few weeks. Last appointment was good, but I had really high BP. Gotta get another reading in a week or so. Too early for pre-e. She figured it was because I had some stomach pain at the time.
