As of today, I have not nursed my Lily Belle for three and a half days! She is doing really well. She has been eating solid foods for months and months and drinking from a sippy cup since she was 5 months old. Nursing has been her naptime and bedtime crutch for some time now. I finally told my husband that it was time for me to stop nursing since she was sleeping through the night. We started enforcing a bedtime and a nap time with no nursing, just milk in her sippy, brush her teeth, read a story or two and then off to bed with her blankie and her Violet Leap Frog Puppy playing bedtime music for 10 minutes. She is doing great! Only a minute or two of a little crying and then she sleeps from 930pm to 9am, and naps for two to three hours a day. I am so happy that I finally have my boobs back!! Hopefully I can start to feel more like myself instead of "mommy" ALL the time!
