How We Weened
After 22 months, nursing sessions have grown shorter and shorter. Then on Thursday…
- “Is that one empty?”
- “Is the other one empty?”
- “Do you think there will be more there after nap time?”
- “Do you think there will be more after dinner?”
- “And what about tomorrow?”
- “Is that OK?”
The next day…
- “All gone.”
Yesterday, two days later, Little Miss woke up from a nap crying and began pawing Mom to nurse. She found a small amount of milk.
This morning, Miss wanted to nurse, but found nothing. No cries, just sober acceptance… on both sides.
In other news, I’m delving into the world of Thomas the Train-style toddler train sets. I want to hear from you if you’ve gone down this slippery slope. Did you buy Thomas or another “compatible” brand? Was it compatible? Did you buy a train table, why or why not? If you have an older kid, at what age did he/she stop playing with the trains? E-mail me (link at upper right). Thanks!
