Croix is completely weaned. He had his last feeding on this past Thursday. He has done great! He doesn't seem to really miss nursing. He takes his sippy cup without protest. He hasn't had any negative reactions to cows milk. He loves, LOVES, LOVES a little pediasure added to his milk. I feel very blessed that the weaning process had been so easy for him. For me on the other hand....can I just say OUCH! It seems like everything I do hurts! I can't give a proper hug. There are times it seems like Croix is just out to cause pain. Clogged ducts and hand pumping have become a daily occurrence. This is no fun! I have a friend who reccomended taking Benadryl to help "dry up". I started that this morning. I really hope it works, and fast! It's making me very groggy. It will be worth it though if it speeds this whole process up! Good grief! I'm wondering, all you Mom's out there who've been through this already, any suggestions of things that will help? How long did it take you to not be uncomfortable anymore? How long was it before you "dried up"?
