still weaning...

i envisioned this process being much more....relaxed. so far it is not. thomas hasn't nursed for over a week, and i'm still uncomfortable and sore. naturally, i have been...

taking descongestants
and using...
cabbage leaves

(yes, i said cabbage leaves). people swear by them, and actually, i did too when i first started nursing. however, nothing seems to help. tonight i even drank sage tea, which actually isn't as bad as i thought it would be. add a bit of lemon and it's actually quite good. any other suggestions? how long is this supposed to take?

p.s. my heavenly baby who sleeps until 9:00 is long gone. he now wakes up when he used to get up to nurse, only instead of nursing and going back to sleep, he now just stays awake and begs for a "nana" (banana) or waffaf (waffle). he's now an early riser, and i don't like it one bit. i would much rather get up at 9:00 than 5:30. i hope this is a phase he will grow out of, but part of me knows he won't. at least i now have a motivation to get out of bed early...and a cute one at that.
