I weaned Hazel about a month ago, and she is doing okay, except that she is attached to my breasts like they are her personal loveys. That is okay to some extent but sometimes it just gets out of hand, or sometimes I just don't feel like having my 3-year-old rubbing her cheeks on my nipples nonstop. I don't know if that makes me a badmama or what but sometimes I just get so touched out and need a little space.
I told some friends I needed to find her a fake one that she could hug and take to bed as her lovey and they said, Hey, have Julie of The Cushie Tushie make you one! Apparently I am not the first person to think of this!
These made me laugh out loud, (a garden of boobies!) but I showed them to Hazel and she wants some! I asked her if she would love some to take to bed and hug and she said, "Yes, those are my present nursies!" (I showed them to DH and he said, "Can I have two?" LOL)
Julie will make them for $10 each which I think is a deal for knitting! She fills them with lentils but I'm going to have her use rice or flax so I can heat them up in the microwave and be warm.
She usually supplies the yarn, but I'm picking out my own, and sending her two skeins of Cascade Cloud 9 in oats and princess. Too much information? I don't know. I have been wanting to use Cloud 9 for something for a long time. It's just soooo soft.
I think they are a riot and if they help my daughter transition from nursing, they are definitely a good thing.
You can get your own woolie nursies by emailing Julie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
