Weany

Well, once we found out about baby numero dos, the weaning came into play. Henry will be 11 months old this week so for the past few weeks, I've dropped a feeding every week and today will be his first day with just ONE feeding (nighttime).

So, two questions: Will this hurt? and Will my chest ever look the same?
Thanks.

I'm no expert, but I did a similar drop a feeding at a time thing with my lil girl. It didn't really hurt me. Maybe some pressure for a while and it took a couple weeks for there to be "nothing there" :)
and as far as the same? I think that's different for everyone. I'm pretty much the same...maybe a little smaller? but I was that to begin with :) Good luck!

It never hurt me at all. As for looking the same...I like Lynette's quote from Desperate Housewives...your boobs look like a bunch of deflated balloons!!!

#1- I think with the gradual method you're using, it shouldn't hurt? That's kinda how we did it and it was fine.
#2- ha ha haaaaaa!!! ahhh...whew. You're funny.

(p.s. that's a no)

Will has been weaned for exactly a week today. I did the same thing that you did and the night one was the last to go. I wasn't sore at all the first couple of days but for the last three, I have been a bit sore. Not terrible...just sore.

Good luck! I hope Henry doesn't even notice.

I slowly dropped a feeding at a time until I was down to just one also. Then I cut that one out and have been done for a week and a half. About 3 days after I stopped I got really sore but it only lasted a few days. Now I look just like I did pre-pregnancy/pre-nursing. Good luck!

Ha ha, no they'll never, ever be the same if gravity's gotten to them. But that's natural. No tandem nursing? Pregnancy's a natural weaner because of the milk changes and common soreness. We made it to 2 weeks before #2 was born and then #1 quit all on his own.
