I love E and I love nursing him. I honestly didn't even mind the overnight feeds since working away from home doesn't allow me to nurse during the day. I can't handle this! I woke up this morning saying that I'm ready to wean. I know I don't mean it, but I'm frustrated and tired. All the stress and lack of sleep, combined with the hormonal drop that comes with my cycle, have made my supply plummet. I stink like maple syrup thanks to fenugreek. I even had to dip into my freezer stash! Hopefully this is temporary and will end in a few days. I just wish it could've happened over a weekend instead of during the week.
I realize that nursing will have its ups and downs, especially as he gets older, but this week has been hard. I haven't felt touched out in ages. I realize that the constant night feedings aren't that bad when compared to nursing a newborn, but it's a huge change from the way he's been nursing for the past 6 months. I just have to keep telling myself, "This too shall pass."
