I cannot. I repeat. I CANNOT believe my
My tits sag.
My nips are huge.
My fun bags are no longer fun, nor bags really, at this point they're more like pancakes.
BUT IT IS ALL SO WORTH IT. Nursing my 7 pound newborn into a 22 pound nearly toddler has been one of the most rewarding accomplishments I've ever had. Right along side
A few months ago I started to think about the weaning process. I thought it was going to be so hard. I always said I would much rather have my heart broken and Bradley ready to give me up rather than Bradley have his heart broken when mommy all of a sudden stops putting her boob in his mouth.
I'm happy to say, It's my heart being broken. He is totally ready to be done with nursing. He is on to bigger and better things and doesn't want to be still for a second. I'm sure if he could talk he would say, "Mom can you give me that in a to-go cup?"
To be honest, I will miss it, probably more than I think I will, but as of right now, my heart isn't that broken. I still have 2 more months to go, but then I think I'll be ready. I do enjoy our time together, but I so enjoy watching learn and discover the world so much more.
As of right now I'm nursing about 4 times a day. Each time he wakes, and then once before bed. If I don't grab him straight from the crib, to the chair in his nursery with the door shut and a quiet house, he won't nurse. If he sees his dad, the dogs, or hears any kind of commotion going on, he wants to be in the mix. I've been getting frustrated, because I know he needs milk, but I also know it's his way of growing up.
And if I can be honest, I'm also glad to be done nursing to get my bra's back. Are you ready to be completely shocked and maybe even grossed out. Well, I've only had 2, yes 2 nursing bra's this whole year. One black and one white. I will be so happy to 1, not have to wash my bra's every week and 2, wear a more flattering bra!
If any of you soon-to-be mommies ever have a boobie feeding question for me I'd be glad to give you some
