1 year today!

My little guy is one year today and still nursing strong! I never thought we would get past a few weeks and yet, here we are. I had always planned to wean right at 12mths if we got that far, but he doesn't seem to be cutting back at all and since it's not all about ME, we will keep going for awhile longer.
Anyway, I just wanted to share. I feel accomplished, even if I don't find breastfeeding to anything super magical, more just a free way to feed my baby. It still took work to get here, KWIM? We shall see where these next few months take us.

Re: 1 year today!

I have 5 kids..I wuit early with the first...the second I nursed until 10 months and I decided to wean...with 3rd and fourth I let them quit when they lost interest around 14 and 16 months. Nursing my fifth. I didn't want to nurse at first. Just tired of nursing babies one after the other. I think I will miss it now when he quits nursing. He is 5 months though..so a ways to go. Yay for breastfeeding!

Re: 1 year today!

Good job Mama! It's all gravy from here on out for you! I have 3 kids, and nursing my 4 mo dd now. I feel the same way about nursing as you. It's nice sometimes, but it's more about feeding. I have been preggo and/or nursing for 4.5 years now with no breaks, so it's a bit tiring at times. The first two weaned at 17 months and 20 months respectively. I'm not sure I'll make it as long with DD though. Seems like 18 months is my breaking point to get my space back! I just hate weaning if they're not interested. DS1 weaned himself at 17 months, and that was way better than when I had to wean DS2 at 20 months!

I am really, really hoping he decides to wean himself around 15-16mths, so I don't have to be the bad guy, KWIM? Wishful thinking probably! LOL!
