Weaning Bean, 40 Days and 40 Nights

Day 29

Tummy aches


Yesterday was New Year’s Day and Bean did pretty dog on good! No morning nursing. We nursed for his nap. Went to my parents house to watch the game (well not really, I was there to eat), and then he nursed at bedtime.

It all went off with out a hitch! At 2:20 a.m. Bean woke up crying. He smelled horrible! I was surprised that he had pooped in his diaper overnight because he never does that. I went to his room and got a diaper, I removed his old diaper and there was no poop! Just really bad gas. I gave him some water and he downed it. So I went to wash my hands and he started retching. I ran back into the room to see him gagging and throwing up. I was able to catch most of it with tissue. It smelled horrible… not that little baby spit up smell. It smelled like adult vomit.

After he was done I wiped his face, neck & chest and removed his PJs. A bit got on the sheets and I wiped it up. He layed his head on my leg and went straight back to sleep. I couldn’t change the sheets at this point. So I put a towel down and turned the lights out. Gross, I know! But like I said it’s like 2:30 a.m. and Bean is back asleep. I have to get up for work in less than 4 hours.

But he didn’t ask to nurse! Thank God. And he slept until after I got up around 6:15. My poor little Bean… his tummy seems better now. I’m exhausted though. What else is new?
