I did what I set out to do!

My 20 month old weaned himself over the last week with no encouragement from me. Nursing wasn't easy to start with. We overcame supply and tongue tie issues. We overcame medical issues preventing him from taking a bottle. We overcame a dairy sensitivity. I can't even lie and say it was smooth sailing after that because I spent the first fifteen months of his life coordinating my life around being available to nurse. He stared dropping nursing sessions at 18 months, and last week was only at wake up, Naptime and bedtime. He has decided he is done by himself and its bittersweet. But letting him self wean was my goal and I am thrilled we made it!! Here is my big boy now who is officially boobie free!
