Free at last! Free at last! I’m free at last.

Yes – we had a very good weaning off breast and out of Mama and Dada’s bed weekend. I am thrilled to report that sprog
a) Slept in his campcot all weekend! But that’s not all! He went to bed at 7 pm with no fuss. No bottle, no breast. Just a minute or two of singing lullabies and he was out cold! Woke at 7 am on Saturday, 6 am on Sunday and 7 this morning!
b) I gave in only once during the weekend. We were at the in-laws on Sunday and he was beyond tired after lunch but because there were so many voices about, I battled to get him to sleep. I had to use my ‘secret weapons’ as husband calls my breasts and got him to sleep by suckling. My milk supply has definitely decreased and I no longer look like a porn star with huge bulbous boobs. Sadly they’re now more ageing porn star sans silicone.
So at the ripe old age of 1 and a quarter year, Sprog is finally out of our bed and off my breast. Now for getting him to sleep in his OWN ROOM! But I will take this s-l-o-w-l-y and maybe try the own room thing next year! 🙂 Have a great day!
From a recently emancipated Mama.

    Well done Shell, your boobs will eventually look reasonable again, mine took about a year, more or less back to pre-breast feeding shape and size!Sounds like he will adjust to his own room with little problems, when you do decide to do it. x

    I had mixed feeling when I stopped breastfeeding. I was a bit sad knowing I’d never do it again, but also relieved to have my body back to myself again!LOL! at the ageing porn star boob comment! Try Innoxa neck & breast firming cream. I started using it a couple of weeks ago, and hubby noticed the difference already. (Maybe he’s just being nice – I don’t see much difference, but at least my skin feels great) :)And yip, take the move slowly – especially now that it’s winter 😉

    Yeah I also had mixed feelings. Had a mini moment… whaaaaaaa he won’t need me. whaaaaaaaaaa i’m no longer needed. But the thought of no longer having to wear hideous bras did it for me. thanks for the cream tip – was wondering what to do with the crinkly paper skin!
