Who's here?
* Stephanie and Mirage

How many times (day/night) does SP nurse?
* We no longer nurse during the day time but I will nurse Mirage before bedtime,anytime she wakes in the middle of the night and when she first gets up in the morning.(no nursings after 9am and before 9pm)on good nights we only nurse about 3 times but i'm sure there are nights where we nurse more because of her getting up more.

Is the end in sight??
*yes, we are in the process of weaning, it's hard. but we've made it one week and we are both doing great now.

Anything else to share?I'm not going to completely wean off until she is 1yrs old, which is just another month.

Who's here? Chell & Liam

How many times (day/night) does SP nurse?

He is such a distracted nurser unless I go sit in a quiet dark room, I would guess he gets in 3 good nursings during the day but he tries to more , latches on , sucks for a few and then hears a noise or brother running by and he pops off and on till I just put him down and try later. We are doing some bottles of EBM ( I am pumping at least 2 times a day to relieve the pressure from his distracted non nursing times ) and formula so he still gets all the nutrients he needs . At night he still wakes to nurse 2-3 times ~

Is the end in sight?? I hope so I am ready to have my own boobs back !! I am tired of wearing nursing bras and having to sleep with a bra on ! My "Girls" want some freedom , lol ~ Liam will be 11 months in a week so I will begin doing half BF'ing and half Lactaid Milk ( He seems to be lactose sensitive so his Ped said we can ) and then slowly over next month taper off the boob and more on a cup of milk ~

Anything else to share? I never thought I would make it this far but I am glad I have , the only thing I have noticed different about Liam verses the older kids is he is such a clinger and mommies boy and I wonder if it is from BF'ing him so long or if he is just a clingy kinda guy ~

I also need to eliminate the nursings before naps - they aren't even full nursings at all, more like a few minutes of sucking... She takes a bottle of bm before bed and I put her down still awake and she goes to sleep no problem.

Who's here?
**Ella & Eliza

How many times (day/night) does SP nurse?
**6-8 times maybe?

Is the end in sight??
**No, probably not for a while. I have no plans to wean her anytime soon. I'll just let her decide when she wants to be done, which I honestly hope isn't for a while because I really love nursing her!

Anything else to share?
**Nope, just can't believe our SPs are going to be ONE YEAR OLD soon!!!
