He ALWAYS remembers lol. We started practicing patience before I went back to work with him (17 months) he's decent about waiting (though he would get upset if I ask him to wait for bedtime) but he's always reminding me. "After I/you/Nora ____, then I can have your milk?" We've been doing pretty well with just the bedtime these last few days but if he falls asleep without for some reason he will wake up really upset and ask, to the point he will fight sleep so he doesn't miss out :(

I also wanted to add that once we got down to nighttime and morning, I told him that he had to breastfeed before he brushed his teeth. So he would breastfeed, brush teeth, read a book then I would put him down to go to bed. He would ask but eventually got into the routine of not breastfeeding to sleep and that made it wayyyyyy easier to eventually ccut the nighttime one oout.

I was terrified of giving it to my newborn.. I got it though lol
