    Weaning

    Advertisements
    ...hurts like a [insert expletive of choice here].

    I'm under Dr's orders to stop nursing, as of 5 days ago, and it super duper sucks. Well, actually there's MUCH less sucking going on, and that's why it hurts.

    In other news, Lyric is 2 months old! Here are some pictures of her today:


    Freaked-out-by-a-rattle Eyes:

    Nomming her hand:

    Trying to crawl (she scoots all over already):

    Still freaked out by the rattle:

    Sitting with mommy:

    Aaaaaaand all worn out:

    Turning 2 months old is exhausting.

    It is a pain when you have a full supply. I weaned my right breast when Henry was 22 weeks and it was SO not fun. I was so humongous and sore for over a week. It still has milk since I'm still technically making milk on the other side.

    I can't believe she's 2 months already! She's so cute!

    Thanks! I am amazed it's been that long as well. And YES my boobs feel like bags of ROCKS. It is horrid.

    This too shall pass... (never thought I would have to repeat that to myself regarding my breasts )

    I wish I could get a picture of her angry eyes right before she falls asleep, but the camera distracts her out of cranky-mode.

    Ohhhh man, I'm sorry

    I wake up almost every morning totally full (baby sleeps a 5-6 hour stretch) and even that hurts.... so bad that my boobs almost get this super sensitive numb tingly feeling. I can't imagine going days without nursing.

    I hope the transition goes easier for you.
