I have two adorable little boys. Really. They are adorable. Both have blue eyes, but Lance's eyes are super blue. When the light hits them just right, they are amazing.
He also happens to have six teeth. Those teeth bite me. Lately, not only has he been biting me while nursing, but he's started trying to gnaw on my shoulder, my leg, my chest...basically anywhere he can sink his teeth into while I'm holding him.
And if I'm being completely honest, I have a confession to make. I'm secretly counting down the months until I can stop nursing him. Knowing that he'll probably begin to sleep through the night then (as opposed to waking up every hour sometimes) sounds heavenly. Saying goodbye to being bitten unexpectedly while nursing also is especially appealing.
But I feel a lot of guilt about feeling this way. I know I should be cherishing these months because they will be over before I know it and the days of baby-ness will have passed, but I can't help but secretly get a little excited each time he gets a month older.
I know I'm doing the best thing for him by nursing him until he is at least a year old and I have no desire to quit now and give him formula. Has anyone else ever felt this way while nursing? Particularly while nursing a 2nd or 3rd child? I guess I'm just hoping to hear that I'm not alone in feeling this way. Having a case of mama guilt isn't fun.
