The Top Five Things I Love About Weaning

I am currently going through the weaning process (for more click Weaning Twins: Finally Getting Your Boobs Back).  Since I am weaning June and I can sometimes feel guilty/discouraged I thought I’d write about some of the great things about weaning.ed hardy

1. I can wear whatever I want…fancy bras, crew neck shirts (to understand this one see…) No more worrying about being able to whip em out when the baby was hungry.

beer2. I can drink…sort of. Don’t get me wrong I have definitely enjoyed a beer while nursing, but now I could have two or three. Mind you, I say sort of because really, who can take care of three young kids drunk… or worse, with a hangover? Not me!

3. Convenience. I have no qualms about nursing in public, but there are times when I just can’t like when I am driving the car or walking the dogs pushing the stroller. Now I can just whip out a bottle and voila we are back on track.wpid-IMAG1894.jpg

4. Me time. After nine long months I can go out for a few hours and not worry about being engorged and in pain if I didn’t get home to nurse right away. Where am I going? Dunno since someone would have to watch the kids but you understand it’s the principle of it.

5.  I get my bed back.  Once I can get her on to bottles she can sleep in her crib and I can go back to sleeping like a normal person instead of like this.sleep
