Have you noticed things have changed around here?
We have. Since weaning, Lil D is eating better,sleeping better and playing better. It is like a breath of fresh air. He is still refluxing unfortunately. However, instead of wanting breast milk to soothe his pains he takes water.
I am feeling refreshed from the 7 hours straight sleep I get almost every night.
I was feeling very weak physically and mentally in the weeks leading up to weaning.
My goodness I am shaking my head at how I managed the 6 + feeds a day for the last 26 months. I guess you do what you have to do at the time to survive.
It is so lovely to have my boobs back. Yah!!
Because waking up during the night to find a toddler hanging off them and you have no idea how he got into bed with you or how he managed to latch on, means you seriously need some kick arse coffee in the morning and a fricken prayer that everyone is going to survive the day in sound mind. Namely you.
Well namely me.
One thing is for sure though, if this rocky road we have just gotten off has taught me one thing, it is to keep searching for the good in any situation. Your excelsior. This blog is testament. Without all of that breastfeeding and baby screaming, this blog would have never been born and without that … I wouldn’t have you. Onwards and upwards 🙂
So bless that blasted reflux and breast obsessed toddler. I found my silver lining.
Can you guess what I watched yesterday… Yup Silver Linings Playbook. Loved it.
