A Robot T-Rex is WAY Cooler Than Boobs {Our Weaning Story}

[typography font=”Cantarell” size=”20″ size_format=”px”]Because a Robot T-Rex is way cooler than boobs we are done.  Breastfeeding is done.[/typography] We lasted 2 years, 11 months, and 21 days.  The end came so fast that I didn’t see it even though I started the ball rolling.  And I swear on my life that I never intended to […]

What it’s really like to breastfeed after 2.5 years

Being that World Breastfeeding Week (Aug 1-7) is nearly finished and I’ve yet to post about the topic I thought it would be fitting to post an update on our breastfeeding journey. [typography size=”18″ size_format=”px”]I forgot to wean him at 1.  I forgot again at 2.  With 3 months until his third birthday it is […]

Weaning or Potty Training? Which would come first?

[typography font=”Cantarell” size=”22″ size_format=”px”]The question posed by a family member “when will you be done nursing?” was shortly followed by “when is he going to be out of diapers?” [/typography] and I didn’t have answers to either one of those questions.  With my first son the weaning came first because I was pregnant again and […]

Oops! I forgot to wean my 2 year old.

Update on our Co-sleeping Conundrum

A few weeks ago I wrote about the trouble I was having getting my son to sleep the entire night in his toddler bed-“How to end Co-sleeping. Advice Needed!!!.” I WAS PLEADING FOR ADVICE!  Thankfully, tons of people (well, tons for me!) commented on my dilemma with lots of useful advice. Many of you suggested […]

How to end Co-sleeping. Advice Needed!!!

I have decided that my son needs to sleep in his own bed, all night.  Not because I don’t love sleeping with him, because I do.  I love snuggling all night and waking up next to him saying a random word every morning like “uh oh” or the standard screaming of “mama, Daaadeeee!”  I need […]

The Sadness and Joy of Weaning

While pregnant with my son Fletcher, I had a dream.  In this dream I was in my glider rocking my newborn baby boy.  He was in my arms, beautiful, wrinkly, sweet, and perfect in every way.  And, I was nursing him.  It was the most wonderful dream…. we seemed so happy and breastfeeding was natural […]
