Hello there again! 
Here I am, Week 2 of weaning. This week was very rough for my little one! I was planning on cutting another nursing session this week, but then my boy got sick. I will wander off a little bit from the weaning subject to tell you what happened:

Off I went to take my son for his 6 month appointment, and on my way to the doctor I heard him spit up a bit. He has never been to much of a spitter, but it wasn't a whole lot so I didn't think it was a big deal. Once I got to the doctor's office, while we were waiting for the nurse to call us, he started throwing up. This was not just throwing up, noooooo, this was projectile vomiting! It looked like a scene from the exorcist! I don't know where they store so much! He drinks maybe 7oz per feeding but he threw up like 3 gallons! He managed to puke on himself, me, the nurse, the floor, the car seat, the doctor and even had some left to throw up in a little bucket they brought for him. Needless to say, I was on full on "mommy-is-about-to-freak-out mode". The doctor decided to push his 6 month old vaccines a couple of days. 

With this vomiting episode, vaccines and what I think was a growth spurt, my little one was extra clingy and he just wanted to nurse all the time. I just didn't have the heart to deny him of the comfort he was so much looking for. So, I kept the weaning schedule I had for him on week 1. 

I hope this comes to show you that you really have to go with the flow and sometimes things will take longer than expected. I still want to wean him but I will not force something if it seems like circumstances are not ideal. My baby boy wanted his mommy! How can you say no to that. I think that as long as we don't go backwards, if we have a delay, it will not be the end of the world. 

So, on to Week 3 of weaning! I will let you know how it goes! :)
