Sorry, Bubby, but it's time to say, "Bye Bye" to your "nursies."
I've decided to wean Tucker. And even though my OB assured me she sees no problem in continuing to breastfeed while pregnant since I'm not considered at risk for pre-term labor, I have several reasons for doing so.
Tucker will be 17 months next week. I plan to start only nursing him at night. Ugghhh! It's gonna be hard taking away that morning "nursey time"! Hopefully we can do that for a month and then work on fading out the night time session. I still plan to embed plenty of 'Tucker and Mommy' time in our daily routine so he's not missing out on that. The hardest part is going to be those mornings when he wakes up at 6:00 am, wanting to nurse and then returns to sleep for another couple hours. I guess I'll try giving him a glass of cow's milk or water to see if that works. Or worse case scenario, we'll eat breakfast and be up that early for the day...
Does anyone have any advice on the weaning process??? Before getting pregnant, I said I would nurse Tucker as long as he wanted, hoping he would just wean himself and I wouldn't have to do it. Now, things have changed and I need some advice on tried and true methods!
