From a Tired Momma...

Dear Lucy,

Mommy's boobies are just that, Mommy's boobies.  I am more than happy to share them with you for the purpose of your nourishment.  However, they are not here to be your pacifier and your method of falling asleep at 1 a.m.  Please feel free to use your thumb for this purpose.  It is always right there and you can have unlimited access to it, especially at night.  Night time is when we like to sleep, especially Mommy and her boobies.  You seemed to grasp this concept at nine weeks of age, not sure why it is so difficult for you to understand now.


Night, night my precious baby girl.  

Love,
Mommy

My prayers are with you during this time. I wish I could give better advice, but I just don't have it. It does get better! Think of how the lord sacrifices so much for us as we continue to stress him out daily (if he could get stressed). I need to do the same as Joshua and Andrew continue to push me over the edge daily.

I'm so sorry! When does this whole breast feeding thing end?!?! :)

That made me smile. I will say a quick prayer for her to be relieved of her need for you at night.

ahhh....isn't it the best?? Could it just be a growth spurt? I'm blaming mine on that. The other night, I literally just rolled side to side with my bra undone, latching and unlatching all night long. It was a long night. Then, last night, they slept all night. They've NEVER done that. I was amazed! I'm hoping for a miracle tonight. Hugs mama!

I feel your pain. Colin woke up 3 times last night. He's been able to sleep through the night 6 times ever. He usually rotates b/w 1-2 times waking per night. It would be nice to get some good sleep. I'm done breastfeeding at 6 months myself, and hope I have the steadfastness to last that long.
