My breastfeeding journey started from crying for not being able to feed my baby and ended with crying to stop. But, we are finally done and I am going to share a few changes I noticed in our lifestyles.
My mood is a lot better now considering how it was when I was breastfeeding. I didn’t like the feeling of having to feed her to avoid tantrums (this started since she turned 1.5 yrs old)
Alayna is more independent now when it comes to sleep or during tantrums. Before she used to just cry and pull my shirt up (no matter where we were and I understand it’s not her fault). Not having to deal with that is actually great.
We both sleep so much better now. No more crying at night, wanting to be fed or holding on to it. Now she just puts her head on my shoulder or my the pillow and falls asleep.
