Oh, I’ve been such a lousy blogger for abandoning my blog, yet again. Being a fully working (and breastfeeding) mum has left me even less time for ‘me’ time when I’m not at work.
Yes, sadly, my me time is at work. LOL. Anyway, a quick update on weaning my 1-year-old, it was a total failure. Couldn’t get her off the breasts even with help of lemon and garlic. Hahaha. So my husband managed to persuade me to keep going until she’s 18 months before trying again. Somehow breastfeeding her was made easier once I’m embracing it. At least temporarily. For now.
At the moment, she’s taking 2-4 ounce of soy milk 1-2 times a day and she takes whatever solid food we give her. Soy milk, because she dislike cow’s milk or goat’s milk. She still heavily rely on the natural pacifier for naps and bedtime if you know what I mean. Lol. Hopefully once we are able to reason with her, it might be easier to talk to her into weaning off. Guess it will be months until part 3 of this series will come.
Actually, I have to say that I’m very proud to have made it this far. Sara is now 14 months and still breastfed. I’m glad that I’m able to provide her with the best. Alhamdulillah. I’m also grateful to have a very supportive husband and family. Seeing her grow strong and intelligent gives me the motivation to keep breastfeeding her.
It’s been a roller coaster journey, and here’s hoping a smooth ride to make it to the 18-months mark.
P.s, Oh, now that I finally got a new phone (after months of indecisiveness, that is 👏) I can now blog on my phone and hopefully there will be more frequent posts to come! InshaAllah.
