Blogging my way through weaning and getting Ethan to sleep in his own bed:
I thought I'd make you all suffer with me. (Ooops that's not speaking in faith). Michael is out of town again so I am putting Ethan in his own bed and weaning him. ALL AT ONCE.
DISCLAIMER: Don't get me wrong, I'm NOT heartless, I promise. In fact, I feel horrible for him! This is AWFUL! But I severely need my body, sleep and bed back. I really really do. I have shared it with him for16 months and I am tired and worn out. And no, I am not doing this all at once with no warning. He was weaned down to only nursing overnight and he was sleeping by himself half the night. Now I am just working on putting him to sleep in another room and w/o nursing. Hopefully I won't get too much hate-mail for this now... (see why I need that book Denise? lol)
Anyway....back to making you suffer with me....
10:00 put him to bed after nice bath and massage with lavender lotion. (him, not me, unfortunately!)
10:05 went and told him everything's okay
10:15 went and told him again. patted him.
10:30 went again. he is quieting down some..I think I actually angered him more this time by going in there. :-(
