On weaning.

So remember how I was like, maybe I will wean Tycho when I'm in Mexico?

Yeeaaaaah, no.

My mom brought Tycho to pick us up at the airport, and as soon as he saw me he held out his fist to sign milk. I asked if I could have a hug. No, just furious signing to nurse. So I breastfed him in the airport before we could even go home. Not so much weaning.

I'm sooooo ready to  be done, though. I thought I wanted to make it until two and the World Health Organization recommendations, blah blah blah, but right now I'm over it and I totally don't care what the WHO recommends.

We are doing great with the twice a day schedule, so now I am dropping us down to once. We often have once days as it is, if the circumstances are right, but tonight was the first time I've managed to distract him from nursing when I got home from work and I haven't seen him all day, so that's a victory. We actually didn't nurse at all today, because I was leaving just as he woke up, but I'd rather cut out my evening nursing session than the morning one, and why not start today? So I will nurse him in the morning tomorrow, and then not again until Sunday. Hopefully. I have no idea how we will be able to drop that last morning session, but I suppose we will cross that bridge when we come to it.

  1. It hasn't been easy for us over here. Cam was down to 1-2 sessions per day and I cut him off. After 48 hours he turned into a holy terror. So he had a nursing fest until I literally got sores on my nipples. We tried again 2 weeks later and so far so good. It's been 1 week 2 days since he last nursed. Now he's addicted to the pacifier but at least it's progress. I think BFing has been messing with TTC #2. Hoping this helps.
