Last night was much better!
I nursed and put Bean to bed around 9:00 in his room.
He woke up at 2:00 a.m., and instead of bringing him to our bed, I went to his room, nursed him back to sleep and returned to my own bed alone! That was pretty much a first. He woke up again at 4:00. This time I did not have the energy to wake up enough to put him back to sleep and I brought him back to our bed. We both went slept for the rest of the night.
Bean woke up around 6:30 and helped himself to breakfast while I was still half asleep. But when I woke up I took it away and told him “all gone”. He tried several more times to nurse but did not kick and throw a fit this time. Again, I bribed him with Bob the Train on my phone, trading one vice for another.
He did manage to get into my shirt when I was getting him dressed this morning. But that was just long enough for me to roll my eyes and snap a pic. Ugh.
He went to Mother’s Day Out today, so no nap time nursing! I haven’t nursed since 6:30 this morning!! (Aside from the couple minutes while dressing him) And although my breasts are leaking as I type this, I feel pretty good about the day! It’s almost bedtime. So I will put nurse to sleep and hope to keep him in his own bed tonight.
