How old is your nursling? 2.5Do you plan to wean before the next baby comes? If so, when? Yes... not sure but I’m getting kinda over it. I didn’t want to wean earlier after a loss, sorts selfish but god forbid I couldn’t get pg again I didn’t want all of it to be over. And I’ve been nursing in the start of every pregnancy so I like that I can say I’ve been nursing and or pregnant for a ridiculous length of time.but... he’s 2.5 and it’s gettjng old. Maybe after winter (sicknesses)Do you plan to tandem nurse? NoAny rants/raves thoughts or questions?
I am not still nursing, DS self weaned over the summer when he was about 14/15 mo but I do still produce tiny drops. I plan to nurse again this time around. Has anyone here ever collected colostrum before birth or is anyone thinking of doing it this time?
@mommymommymommyhi We are working on that, too. I’m thinking we are going to have some monthly practice runs of my DS staying over at my parent’s house starting in March. That’ll be our anniversary and I know we want to do a night away then. Hopefully he’ll be sleeping better on his own, then. Even now he is doing better about not always nursing right to sleep. He’ll nurse for a bit, break off and wiggle around until he’s asleep (he’s in a twin floor bed, now). That’s a pretty recent development, so I know we'll get there!
My toddler has been super clingy esp at night. Gone from totally sttn to waking 2-3 Times most night and needing “mommmmmmyyyyyyy”could be untelated or could be related, no clue. I’m feeling a bit over it now, some adversion kicking. I was thinking to nurse through cold and flu season before weaning but we’ll see. @mommymommymommyhi I’ll bet at that age it may not be as bad as you think... kinda like how mynutslings always go to bed just fine for sitters but for me it’s a loooong nursing stretch. Or it’ll be a s-show in which case... it’s be ok too. He will survive and so will his caretaker. One of many reason I prefer not to stay at the hospital longer than required (24hrs).
