Taboo topic 😱💁🤦
For (almost) NINE months I’ve been feeding this tiny little monster off of me. I mean, honestly it was amazing at the beginning… The love, the feeling of them only needing you, the bonding, the much easier sleepless nights🤦 I co-sleep when I breastfeed…obviously that’s not ideal for most people, but for us it’s what works. And with this past year, it’s what was the smartest thing for us.
We’ve been living at churches, at family members houses etc… So sharing a bed and not always setting up a space for her was what was the most convenient. Obviously most people having a baby have a home….🙃 but as I’ve said before, this year has taken us to hell and back.
Now that we’re finally set up in our new home, and have a room for the girls and the boys…. I want this baby to wean off me!! But…it’s been so long that she’s been attached to me…that she isn’t ready yet….😭 or maybe she is… I’m not really sure… I’ve never had to wean a baby…
I mean… She is eating more and more foods, and really only comes to me when she’s tired or teething or sick….🤔 which it seems like it’s been so much lately….but truthfully it probably hasn’t been any more than normal…
I’m just ready to get past this.
The sore nipples.
the sharp ass razor teeth…
Butttttt, I’m not ready to let go of her needing me… And the snuggles, and the love….😭
This too shall pass, and eventually I’ll be so happy that we made it so far in our breastfeeding journey, and look at all the people who judged and be able to laugh instead of crying about it🤦
Here’s to the next month…..😂 we shall see where this journey takes us.
Stay golden my friends.
