I have officially started weaning Lucas. It's been on my mind for a couple months now, but I had no good reason to stop nursing. But now that we have a possible trip coming up in April where we will be gone overnight from the boys, I am motivated to start the weaning process! Lucas is 20 months old now, and although I'm sure he would continue to breastfeed for many more months, I feel okay about stopping now.
Lucas also slept better last night and didn't nurse at all in the middle of the night. I also noticed the last two nights he has not nursed as long before bedtime. I'm a little sad that the weaning process seems to be going so quickly! I was expecting it to take at least a month, but perhaps Lucas is more ready to be done than I thought. I am hoping that this may lead to him sleeping better at night. I will give you all an update on his nighttime head-banging soon!
