@MrsDPal811:  I know how you feel! Dirty Delete is almost 16 months old and we just weened completely, though I was pumping all day when I was at work, too. Happy to not be hooked up to that damn pump anymore! But yeah, definitely sad to lose that closeness with her. And for me, I think my moods actually mellowed a little once I stopped, but I have definitely noticed the pounds creeping back on slowly and me no likey!!!

And same with the room situation for us, too. She still sleeps in our room and I’m starting to feel more and more that it’s perhaps a good time to transition her to her own room (she’s in there for naps but not overnight). But then we have nights like last night where she wakes up crying and all it takes is light on, paci popped back in the mouth, light off, and she’s sound asleep again. I know if she’s in the next room I won’t be able to do my ninja momma moves fast enough and I end up thinking what’s the rush?

I didn’t Boyfriend or Best Friend, so I have nothing valuable to contribute–but as far as the room sleeping–DD slept with us for the first three months, and then we moved her to her own room.  We BOTH sleep so much better now!  I don’t know how that works with older babies, and I had a few nights where I felt she was too far away, but mostly, it’s been like heaven.

@Mrs. Nachos:  A few things:

My daughter is much younger than yours (6 months) and she sleeps in her own room–that paci trick works the same for us, even being next door.  You slip in, give it to her, and she goes right out, no fuss.  She maybe only needs it once or twice a night (if that).

I read your blog every day and I think you’re fantastic!  And that’s a mighty cute kid you’ve got there too.

I’m pregnant again, and your icon is making me want nachos.  Where can I get them at 10:30 in the morning??

@Quietserenity:  The thought of having to actually get up and out of the room is the part I’m not looking forward to! And you’re making me blush 😉 And seriously, I craved buffalo chicken nachos every other day when I was pregnant!

@Mrs. Nachos:  I can’t speak for myself (DH gets up in the middle of the night, I keep myself in bed) but he says it’s really not that bad.  He prefers it to when she was in our room because she settles down much faster.
