That's awesome! I've read that article so many times. It sounds like a great method! Good luck! And congrats on 3 successful nights already!
I'm still in limbo. And no symptoms of ovulation even. Took another PG test yesterday just because and it was negative.
A friend of mine told me she's pregnant with #3. Her 2nd kid is 6 months younger than mine. I felt a bit jealous but I believe everything happens for a reason. There is a good reason that I'm not pregnant yet. I think our minds are powerful and I know before I started having kids my "ideal" age gap between kids was 3 years. So I think that's what I might end up with...Just a guess
Well last night wasn't quite as successful lol... she wouldn't settle while I was laying beside her crib at 3:30. And I'm sure I heard her tummy rumble so I fed her because I think she was actually hungry. She nursed at 9 and 3:30 so I did get my six hours in. I think that's 3 nights in a row of 6 hr stretch so hopefully that's helping my prolactin come down enough!
Oh, don't beat yourself up too much about the 3:30 feed. You did great! She probably was hungry if you heard her stomach. That's still really good sleep for both of you! Maybe she'll eat more solids today and won't be hungry at night again...Or as soon. I find my son will sleep longer if we give him a high protein snack before bed. Like oatmeal, eggs or more meat from supper. That's "if" he'll eat it..lol
Yay! Beauty Queen! I hope you can rest with a heating pad or something today though! Lol
I've figured out why DS increased his nursing and night wakings this past week. He had a sore throat! He's now in the snotty nose phase of a cold and I have the sore throat phase...I wish they could tell you what's wrong. Nursing really fixes Everything but I wish at times if I knew what was wrong I could fix with something other than nursing...
I thought it was teething but usually when it's teething he happily lets me put orajel on his gums but he didn't want it... He was better behaved after having Tylenol but I don't like using that too often
How's everybody getting on? Night weaning isn't going so well so decided to just cut down nursing overall not specifically at night. So yesterday we did 6am, 6pm, 10 and 11pm. Night waking was just 5am today. I'll have an extra nurse today at naptime because we are at home. I don't think she could possibly go for a nap without nursing . Yesterday she fell asleep in the car so I had quite a long gap during the day!
That sounds good Reiko
We are about to start night weaning now too. I'm not looking forward to it but I think it's do-able now. We tried many times in the past year but not much luck.
It is very hard!
I hope you find something that works for you
On our third night of weaning. I just got DS to sleep by letting him nurse just till he was about to fall asleep then I told him I'm empty and he has to stop nursing and to cuddle instead. So he grabs my arm and pulls it over his body and hugs my arm so tight and falls asleep. It was super cute!
Last night was similar and he slept 9pm-12am before his first wake up. Then my husband dealt with him throughout the night. I couldn't sleep. The oxytocin from nursing puts me to sleep and I'm kind of reliant on it. So I watched TV and didn't go to bed till 3am. But I slept solid until 8am when DS got up for the day ready to nurse. DH says he woke up every 2-3hours still through the night but was very accepting of cuddles in place of nursing. This has to be a maturity thing because he was never this understanding when we tried night weaning before.
I'm really in need of weaning my 21 month old she's good at night only occasionally waking normally she sleeps through but tbh I want to get her to wean before baby gets here I don't think I can b a tandem mum, I want her to cut down herself it's so hard tho when she's saying booba booba bless her and yes I got pregnant on the pill without even having my first period x
