Today is day four of weaning.
So far, it's been okay, with the exception of day two. Day one, three and four were great. Day two was a bad day. Not for Roo, not in the least. But day two for me was HORRIBLE b/c my boobs were achingly full (is this too much info?), so full that it was painful. I couldn't even pick up my daughter without cringing in pain. And I'm a klutz by nature, so I managed to impale my boobs on everything in a ten mile radius.
Today, my boobs are doing so much better. No where near as full as day two, or even day three for that matter. It seems they are playing along just nicely and can read my brain waves (It's possible, right?).
We're down to nursing two times a day and she is handling it like a champ, much better than myself. I make sure to hide my boppy pillow, have a sippy cup on hand and have a full bag of distraction tricks. Occasionally, she will crawl up into bed and search for the boppy pillow so as soon as I see this, I snatch her up and take her outside to play.
I'm thinking that next week we'll try and drop the naptime feeding... this could be a disaster b/c she nurses to sleep a lot. I'm not looking forward to this.. at all.
Here's to hoping, right?
