Weaning herself off naturally

For the past months Lily has been breast feeding only 3 times a day.

In the very early morning when she wakes up which usually makes her fall back asleep for another hour or so, in the afternoon before her nap and at night before she goes to sleep.

Through the months, while she breast feeds, she has slowly weaned herself off.

While she is breast feeding, she feeds less and less each time.

Last night, as quickly as she latched on, she latched off and sat up wanting to just be put in her crib.

I get it, she is showing me she is no longer a baby. 🙁

She no longer needs to be breast fed.

I am thankful that I got to breast feed for 1 year.

I am thankful that my body naturally produced enough milk to naturally feed my baby. No formula ever needed. (I’m not knocking formula)

Goodbye breast feeding. It was wonderful while it lasted!

Feels like forever ago

Yesterday while Lily was falling asleep to nap, I thought about how long it had been since I breast fed her.

Then, I started counting months and realized that she is only 16 months, she weaned herself off at 12 months so, it had only been 4 months!

It feels like forever ago.

When it happened I was worried that I would lose that bond with her.

That she and I wouldn’t have those wonderful quiet moments anymore.

I had no reason to worry.

She and I have many wonderful quiet moments and we are closer than ever.

My little ratinha is growing fast but she still needs her mama. 🙂

me, Lily and the moon
