Waylen officially dropped down to one nap this past week and we survived! I’ve been getting a few questions about the whole experience, mostly 1) how did the transition go? and 2) what does his schedule look like now? So I thought it was time for another “day in the life” posts! Let me start… Continue reading A Day in the Life: Waylen (14mo)

Waylen: Choosing to Wean

I could seriously cry. Waylen is officially a year old and after a lot of thought and conversations with Chappy we decided it was time to wean. Why? We’re being selfish- kind of. We want more kiddos and that’s just not possible for me while breastfeeding. Some people can get pregnant while breasting while others… Continue reading Waylen: Choosing to Wean

Baby Led Weaning: 1 Month

We are knee deep in Baby Led Weaning and are seriously having so much fun! It was a little nerve racking at first but Waylen has proven to me again and again that he is totally ready for all these finger foods we're giving him. He chomps and chomps away and rarely ever gags on… Continue reading Baby Led Weaning: 1 Month
