Better for Everyone (Changes in Nursing)
I decided to try dropping a feeding today. I think E's been ready for this for some time, but I haven't been. I finally realized that I've been going about it backwards (listening to my own fears instead of letting his cues guide me), which has caused me to be more paranoid about weaning than I need to be. So, today I'm only nursing him three times: morning, midday (which we did at one o'clock before nap), and bedtime. I'm also leaving the middle of the night nursing session alone for now. Going from four to three daytime feedings feels HUGE. It's a big change. I'll report back on our progress in a week or so, but this feels right so far.
