If someone told me 16+ months ago that I would still be nursing K, I would have thought that it wasn’t very likely. I had every intention of nursing for a year and even a little beyond, but I had big plans to start pumping soon after a year and give him milk a few times a day with a cup. Right. Even more than that, I fully intended to have a baby that slept through the night by now so night nursing wouldn’t even be part of the conversation. Do you hear my slightly maniacal chuckling? Not only will K not allow breastmilk to be given to him from anywhere other than “the tap”, he also can’t go to sleep without it. This is becoming a problem for me. After 16 months I would like to know what a full night’s sleep feels like.
If anyone out there has any tried and true tips for me to wean a breastmilk addict at night I would love to hear it! But when all is said and done, how can I say no to these eyes?
