Just Say No to Milk Update

The Little Man is exactly two and a half years old today. It has been 15 days since I've started saying no to his morning nursing sessions. The first day, he cried. The next few days after that, he didn't seem to think to ask. Then he started asking again. Usually he is good about it, but some mornings, it seems when he wakes up a bit too early, he gets upset and cries.

I feel bad for him, in the sense that he wants something he can't have, but I don't feel bad about it. So I think that means this is the way things are supposed to go for us. I'm ready. If I felt bad or guilty about it, I wouldn't do it.

I feel like it's given me a bit more freedom and that's a lovely thing!

There are still the two nursing times left (nap and bedtime) but I'm not in a rush to get rid of those. I might follow his lead a bit more closely for those.
