Sorry for the long lapse in posting. There's a lot going on, which has taken my attention away from writing. Also, to the creepy guy that's sending me requests for private videos on every social media network he can find me on, stop please.
Breastfeeding has been tough for me lately. Having three kids is tiring. The nights have been challenging; which have been making me extra tired and grumpy. Chloe and Desmond are both needing me very much, day and night. I haven't been very good with taking care of myself so my body is very taxed.
But to quote one of my favorite video games: "Blah, blah, blah. Everybody's got problems."
In other (more happy news) Chase has asked to nurse again. He's nursed twice in the last couple of days. I've read that older kids may ask to nurse after being weaned for a long time, and then giggle and run away (or something similar). I haven't come across an account where a 5 year old will start nursing again after being weaned for a little over a year. Not that he's back to nursing by any means. He asked, latched, and nursed for a few seconds before moving on. His latch is very weak and not at all "correct" but it doesn't hurt. He first asked when he was very upset and looked a little surprised when I said yes. Overall, it seems to me like an experiment, not so much a return to breastfeeding. Either way, he's comforted by the experience so I'm happy.
On another slightly unrelated note, my husband has taken up a photo a day project. I am thoroughly enjoying them! I'm waiting to see a breastfeeding shot show up! There's 2.5 nurslings in this house, you'd think a few would pop up! *Hint Hint, Nudge Nudge* :)
You can follow his project on Instagram @stevebu56. Love you babe!
