Weaning Success

Posted by Rin Buth at 11:12 AM 1 comments
This isn't make-up or beauty related at all. But I bought some make up and brushes so a post will be coming shortly!

Since Saturday night, I haven't been allowing Dante to fall asleep on the breast. Of course there were plenty of tears but since he hasn't been falling asleep on it, I've noticed a big difference in his personality. He appears a lot more confident and he isn't quite so clingy. We took him out on Sunday to a shopping center and he actually sat in the stroller and fell asleep when he was tired, which he never does! Usually he cries when he's tired and I have to pick him up to stop his tears.

Today, I thought I'd have a hard time trying to get him to have a nap without the breast, but he went straight to sleep with a dummy! Shock horror. I didn't expect all this to happen so soon. It has made life a lot easier for me, I can now go to the toilet whenever I need to rather than hold it in until he wakes up. I'm so happy!

I decided to wean him because I felt he was getting too clingy and dependant on the breast. He still breastfeeds, but only for nutrition about 3 or 4 times a day. There's another reason why I wanted to wean him though. A friend is coming over in September to celebrate her birthday and I wanted to be able to party with her. Now that Dante can go to sleep without me, I can leave him with someone for the night. Horray!

It's Time To Wean

Posted by Rin Buth at 2:54 PM 1 comments
I've been breastfeeding Dante for over a year now and I feel that he's become too attached to the breast. He comes to me for comfort sucks as well as needing it to get to sleep. I don't mind it, it's beautiful watching him sleep on it but some days I don't get to have showers as P comes home late and I can't leave Dante while he's sleeping.

With Tony, I breastfed for over 2 years and I managed to wean him by "controlled crying" at a sleep center. It was successful, but it was awful doing the whole leaving them to cry thing. I don't want to do the same thing to Dante so I'm going to see the doctor to discuss my options on weaning. I want Dante to be able to be seperate from me and not be so clingy. It's going to be hard, but I really feel that I need to get this done sooner rather than later so I can reclaim some semblance of a life.

I don't know why I'm blogging about it. Maybe to make it official? Hmm. I'll update on the progress anyway (if any!) I just need to be optimistic about it... *deep breathes* Ok off to the doctors I go!

TGIF

Posted by Rin Buth at 5:49 PM 0 comments
I'm so glad the weekend is upon us. I love the weekends, no getting up early and just bumming around. Tony, my older son often stays over at my mum's house- he just loves staying over for some reason. Probably to get away from me, the cranky mum who doesn't like loud noises and mess! Haha. I hope Dante does the same when he gets older!

This weekend will be a quiet one. No shopping (boo hoo), but we'll be looking at display homes with my parents. I think that's all we'll be doing. Usually we go to a shopping center but P is sick of them and I have no money to spend so we'll be giving that up until we have cash agian.

I really need to start looking for a good concealer and foundation. I've heard great things about Mac so I might look into that... when I have money, of course! Right now I'm using Revlon products. I like Revlon- affordable and does the job nicely. And they're not hard to find, which is a bonus. I like being able to pick up something without having to go too far from home.

Anyway I don't really have much more to say. I wish I could have a whole day to myself, to shop! How I took that for granted! I can't wait to start shopping agian. Have a good weekend, all!

10th Photo Tag

Posted by Rin Buth at 8:39 PM 11 comments

I was tagged to do this by Tamara:

  1. Open your first photo folder
  2. Scroll down to the 10th photo
  3. Post that photo and story on your blog
  4. Tag 5 others (or more) to do the same

Here is my tenth photo in my first folder:

This is a shot of Dante when he was about 8 months old. I decided to take photos as he seemed so happy playing in his ExerSaucer bouncer.

I'm now tagging:

Uh-oh, I Bought Shoes!

Posted by Rin Buth at 8:19 PM 1 comments
I went out and bought these shoes today. Shhh! Don't tell the partner! He's forbidden me to buy anymore shoes as I have lots already, but I just had to have this one. It was 30% off! So now it's sitting in the boot of the car, hidden away. I don't know how I'm going to take it out of the car without him knowing. I also don't know when I'll get to wear them. I'll probably have to wait awhile before it's safe to do so! But they look hot with jeans.

I'm a little dissapointed, I wanted to buy two others but one style they didn't have, and one they did have and it looked great, but when I tried it on it wasn't comfortable at all. Like, it was digging into my toes and made my toes look all squishy. I wanted to get it but I know I wouldn't be able to wear them for long before they'd start to hurt, so I did the smart thing and let them go. They were so pretty though. *sobs* Why can't all shoes be comfy?!

I really want to go to a bigger store and look for the other one that I want. You can order it online, but my credit card is maxed out. Boo hoo! So I'm not sure what I can do just yet. I'll probably end up paying my credit card off just enough so I can purchase it. But if I order it and it arrives, won't P be like "wtf"?! Oh, the joys of having a partner. NOT. I don't want to be sneaky but I don't want to be deprived either. If I want something, I have to have it. Why can't men understand that?

O.P.I Russian Navy and Chip Skip

Posted by Rin Buth at 11:21 AM 6 comments
I've been trialling O.P.I's Chip Skip. Let me just start off by saying that I was skeptical at first. It's a product you apply to your nails before you put your base coat on, it dries in seconds and is clear. It claims to prevent chips, and it really does what it claims! Your polish won't chip for a week or more. I've been wearing my polish since Wednesday last week, it's been 8 days since and not a chip in sight. Usually I start getting chips in a day or two! So the product does work, and I would definately recommend it.

The colour I'm wearing is Russian Navy by O.P.I. I wanted to get a really dark, almost black colour and I found it! It's good to wear with dark denims.

I Want These Shoes!

Posted by Rin Buth at 9:11 PM 3 comments
At Hype DC they have some gorgeous shoes on sale... I really really want the ones pictured! It's been a long time since I've bought some fashionable shoes for myself... I think the last time was in Feb. But that doesn't really count, cuz P bought them for me. When I want something, I obsess over it. I can't stop thinking about it. I scheme up ways I can get it. I even dream about it!

So I guess I'm going to have a hard time until I can get my hands on these shoes. It will be a loooong while before I can sleep peacefully. P says they look skanky. Do they? I don't think they do at all, but each to their own.





Bio-Oil Works!

Posted by Rin Buth at 10:58 AM 2 comments
I've been AWOL recently... well not really, I've just been glued to the tv because we recently got foxtel installed. But anyway, for the past month I've been using bio-oil for my acne scarring. I really should have taken a before and after, but I didn't think of it back then. I had a whole heap of scarring on both my cheeks and a bit of my chin. And when I say a lot, I really do mean A LOT!! It was the focal point of my face. It was the first thing you saw. It was the ONLY thing you saw, come to think of it. And it was dark in colour, like a brownish red.

So the past month, I've been using bio-oil as religiously as I can. I forgot a few times, but for the majority of the time I was good. I have really noticed the difference! The scarring has faded, it's now no longer the focal point of my face, nor is that garrish brownish red colour, and my skin is smoother too. So does it work? For me, YES! I would definately recommend it. It says to use for three months, I have seen improvements in just one month! A great product, I'm so glad I have used it as it's improved my appearance and confidence heaps!
