A Natter: More baby talk :)

Workout: 15 minute hot-legs workout + 15 minute no crunch ab exercises + 2 mile interval run

Me: My BB keeps trying to bite me when I'm breastfeeding her.
RC: I think she's trying to tell you something.
Me: I know, but it's just so sad. She's growing up so fast...
Me: Sigh...
Me: She doesn't need me anymore!

I think my BB IS trying to tell me something, that she's ready to move away from breastfeeding.

When I first started, I had a 6 month goal in mind. I was actually prepared to stop when I went back to work because I didn't know if I was going to have any problems with pumping. I was blessed with a good milk supply, so the 6 month mark came and went.

We now do a mix of mainly breastmilk and one or two bottles of formula at daycare, but it seems she's ready to go all bottle. My BB is growing up way too fast.

I didn't realize I was going to take the weaning so hard. I knew I was going to start next month, but this kind of took me by surprise. Last night, she bit me again before sleepy time and I really thought I had missed the last real feeding. I got really sad, like in a blink of an eye my baby's first year had passed.

I was hopeful this morning and all was going well for a couple of minutes, then she stopped and did it again.

Note to self: try to live in the moment and cherish every minute of it!

Off to sulk, just a little bit. Do you guys have any experience with breastfeeding? Am I just being coo-coo?

ADios :)

Hello! I clearly have no experience with breastfeeding, but God willing I want to breastfeed my children one day. If I am honest though, the whole mouth to boob thing is kind of strange for me. I am completely on board with the health benefits for both baby and mother so no problem there. And I am told once I have the child my feelings might change. I know it is such a bonding experience. So I guess we will see... I have watched many friends go through what you are doing. Some very attached to it... other not. I guess there is no right or wrong here either! :)

You are so funny! As much as it is a bonding experience, I think it still is a little weird myself.

It's hard to describe and I honestly didn't realize I was going to get so attached. Oh well, I guess that's how it goes :)
