Ok, so I am just putting this out there and assuming that no one is going to be a douche bag. Please do not make me wrong. Please!
So. I need advice, because as it turns out, I am SO SO SO SO done with nursing. Katie Dubs is a year old (almost!) but it turns out that she is SO SO SO SO not done with nursing. And I have no idea how to get her to quit. And I need to get her to quit or I might lose my mind.
I have no experience with this because Eli thought nursing was for losers. Right around this same time with him, I was over it, (in fact I was over it much LATER than he was over it) and I just stopped forcing him to do it, and he was done. So that was it. I had to pump once because it hurt, and then I never got engorged again, and it was all over and dear god in heaven I finally got to wear a bra without flaps.
But Katie Dubs? She is all about the boobs, man. She can hold a sippy cup, but mostly if she is given a sippy cup or a bottle, she takes a big gulp and then lets the milk dribble out of her mouth, and then laughs. It’s fun for games, but then she would like nursing, please.
She sleeps through the night now, mostly, but when she wakes up in the morning, anywhere between 5 am and 6:30, she wants the nursing and she WANTS IT NOW. I cannot imagine a sippy cup is going to over well at 6 am. But maybe if her dad gives it to her? In the rocking chair in her room?
I don’t know. I just have the feeling it’s going to suck. And like maybe I’m missing something? All ya’all that have done this before, what do I do? Because really, I am done, done, done.
