Welcome back Mari! Sounds like you guys enjoyed yourselves on vacation! I am jealous that you got to go for such a long period of time - that is so nice to be able to escape from reality once in a while.

Congrats on NPP!!!

Oh, and I relate to what you said about Fede pinching your other nipple - Eliza does the same thing while she nurses and it is so annoying!! And when I move her hand away and try to put something over it so she can't pinch me, she gets mad! HA! Who do these babies think they are!? LOL! :)

Oh and good luck with weaning! You'll have to check back in with us and let us know how it's going. I am curious to hear people's weaning experiences -- Eliza is soooo obsessed with BFing right now, I'm afraid she'll never wean!!

Pffff... I totally screwed up the section of the post... Any therapist would have a blast about my subconsious right? ;)

Well, to those of you who wanted to know about the weaning process....

I decided to do it with a clean cut. Fede was nursing only 3 times a day (early morning, nap, and bedtime), but was nursing a lot during the night, so even if I could cut one of the day's feedings, I figured that wouldn't alter the supply, the night feedings were making sure I had PLENTY. If we night weaned, I figured we should wean fully, once and for all.

So I spent all sunday night/monday morning feedings looking at Fede and getting all nostalgic about the end of BF. I've truly liked (most of) it. In my heart this marked the end of his "babyhood", and he is now a toddler, end of discussion. It's wonderful to see him grow up, but it's also painful, KWIM?

During monday things were cool, it took me a little more than usual to make him sleep his nap, but I finally did it. The night.... oh... so horrible!!!! He kept reaching up with his little arms for me to hold him, and when I did, he tried to pull down my nightgown, so I had to tell him NO, and take his hands away, and he cried such a terrible heartbroken cry!!!! It seemed it would never stop. I gave him a bottle with expressed BM, and at first he started sucking like a lost man... somewhere in the middle of it, he realized it was plastic or something and trew it on the floor and started crying even harder... Finally I had to hide in my room to cry and DH took the matter in his hand. After some singing and rocking he finaly fell asleep. He woke up several times during the night but DH managed to make him go back to sleep.

Finally, at dawn, I made him another bottle, and cuddled with him in our bed. He drank 8 oz nonstop while we cuddled and kissed him, and he finally smiled again!!

Tuesday was better, and yesterday even better.

Ha ha, I thought you were pregnant again too! ;) But hopefully you'll soon be.
Thanks for the update on the weaning - I know what you mean about that bittersweet feeling, admitting your baby is growing up and "let him go" a bit. It sounds like Fede gave you quite a hard time! Probably best to let DH deal with him on these occasions, it will be easier for both you and Fede.
I LOVED having my boobs back for a while after I stopped BFing! Get yourself measured and get some nice bras that are supportive, it will make you feel a lot better about their new shape.
All that's left to say is good luck trying for your second!! Hope you'll join us in the preggo thread soon!
