I’ve not posted for a few days because there wasn’t much to update you all on.
Little man is rarely asking for booby out right. Once a day if at all and he’s no longer helping himself or rummaging around my tops.
However the nights have been more restless. So much so I thought he might have an ear ache. Docs confirmed there’s nothing wrong they restlessness and calling out for MUMMY is BF related. So I’ll continue to comfort him with cuddles as we co sleep.
Oh and Daddy is getting up to make sippy cups of warmed milk… so no ending the BF journey does not mean your little one will sleep through the night. Myth busted!
How do I feel now it’s been a week? I feel sad it’s coming to an end. It was a real struggle in the beginning like the hardest soul crushing experience I ever made was to bf my little boy but it’s my biggest and proudest achievement. I am so proud we did it for over a year. I am also relieved to stop as well because I needed to get some me time back – in the form of sleep. It’s been well over two years I’ve had a full nights sleep due to pregnancy related health issues.
So if you’re thinking about starting your BF journey – it’s amazing! Do it if you can. We’ve enjoyed some really amazing moments and it helped us immensely when bottle feeding wasn’t working for us.
Boob wise – there’s literally little to no milk. I just express once a day. No engorgement or anything.
