Im so happy and impress with the progress of weaning off uZAir. As i mentioned in previous post, i started weaning him off during the day. At night he still wakes up and bf. But i was firm enough not to let him bf to sleep. Only when he wakes up middle of nite he bf. After 3 weeks of complete success of no bf during the day, and “complete success” means he no longer ask for it at all. The first week, he did ask but i distract him from asking for it.
On last Tuesday, my instinct said i should start to wean off during the night too. As much as I expect, he scream on top of his lung. That woke both the brother and sister up. And even my maid. He was screaming non-stop, hempas2 badan and all. I carried him out to watch the tv. That kept him silent for a minute or so and then he started pointing to the bedroom. brought him in, he showed sign that he wanted to lie down on the bed. Place him on the bed, on The Wiggles and he started crying less. I hug him and tried to put him to sleep. After total of 20 mins of screaming and yelling, he finally slept. But it didn’t end there. He woke up 3 times. So the drama repeated 3 times too.
On the 2nd nite, samething happen, 3 episode of the same drama. At first i was so sleepy that i couldnt bother to go tru the drama. I was sooo close to lifting up my tshirt to bf him so i could continue my sleep. But alhamdulillah i had the determination to proceed with the battle of weaning off. I told myself, there’s no turning back or else he will be wondering what actually happen yesterday that he was denied access to my b**by.
On the 3rd nite, syauQi was already back from work. Uzair, woke up as usual and started screaming. I brought him out to watch the tv to distract him. He was till screaming out loud, and syauQi came out with annoyed face “ssshhh, quiett uZAir!!” i told syauQi not to scold him coz it is not as though by choice he wishes to go through that drama, all he knows is that he wants to bf but not getting it hence the anger. I continued hugging and kissing him telling him how much i love him and that he is such a good boy yada yada yada. Again, went through 3 episode of it .
On the 4th nite, he gets the idea of it. He woke up, cried a lil for a while, i hug him and he continued sleeping.
Last nite (5th nite), things got smoother, the moment he woke up…he’ll come to me. He’ll sleep in my arm while i tepuk2 him and continue his sleep…
Alhamdulillah, things are getting better by nite. Hope tonite, he will sleep through the whole nite. hihi
Looks like im getting closer in getting my beauty sleep, insyaAllah =)
