You may remember a few weeks ago, when I was distraught at the idea of Evelyn having formula during the day because I wanted to continue to breastfeed and nurse. Well, that distraught feeling has left for seven reasons. One, that she is doing wonderful with the mixture of breastmilk and formula. And the other six are the sharp little white teeth that she bit me with while nursing today.
SO – we are done nursing. I know that you can continue to nurse through teething, but once was enough. I do not really think I am up for “gently removing her and saying ‘no’ firmly”. We’re good. Evelyn can stop nursing and start using a cup. Hello pumping. I’m going to really miss the bonding that nursing provides, but I think that big ole chomp will stay in my mind for a while.
