Monday, December 29th, 2008. The first day since Maddie was born that she didn't nurse at all. Not once. Sigh.

She hasn't nursed much anyway for about the last 2 months. Maybe once or twice a day. Especially the past month.. I don't think any milk is coming out anymore. But in the past couple of weeks she hasn't been interested much at all except for her wake up nursing.. and yesterday morning I passed out cold after work (I get off at 6am) and John said I didn't wake up when they came into the room. So he let me sleep.

So I think she's pretty much weaned herself for the most part.. which is the way I wanted it to be. I didn't want to suddenly deny her booties. I left it up to her and it worked out wonderfully!

Oh ya, and just so I remember, December 16th was the first day she took more than 2 steps before plopping down on her bottom. She walked/shuffled about four feet from a chair to the couch. Yay baby!

Maybe pregnancy changed your milk? It could be that your body isn't producing as much since it's diverting more calories/energy to your pg..?
Anyway, glad it worked out best for both of you!

The taste changes when you get pregnant. Perferctly normal for her to wean herself at that point

i just tried to make sure I remembered the last time my baby got to nurse because she was the 2nd and last baby so it was a moment for the books!
