Night weaning

  More on night weaning:   Of course, it helps that my daughter is now 2 years old (and 4 months) and can actually understand some reason. She’s a big talker. So one of the things I accidentally did right, early on, was getting into the habit of only breastfeeding in one spot. Just one. The […]
