No one ever said that wearing a 12 month old was going to be easy. I guess it has been to long since I weaned a little one that I have forgotten how painful it is to wean. Not only for me, the engorgement is enough to make anyone cranky, but also for the young toddler that wants a little comfort food. Weaning is a stage of life. I have to tell myself that this too shall pass. I went on-line and tried to find a little information about how to help make the weaning process a little easier. Most of the sites said to do it slowly, and they are right. The slower you wean the easier it is on you and baby. Well, I did do it slowly. I went extremely slow, I dropped a feeding once ever 5 days. When I got down to two a day (once in the morning and once at night) that is when it got really tricky. That is when I had problems with engorgement, when I went to nursing once a day. If I had it to all over again I would keep the two nursing session and just cut how long he nursed each time.

|Give it to me mom, and let me try it|
|This milk is pretty good.|
When it comes to weaning a baby the best thing to do it PRAY!
