Wow, all these years, I'm done today.

I've been steadily pregnant or breastfeeding (non stop) Since November 2002. This morning, Tagg nursed for the last time. He was down to just the one morning nurse, and I was all up for letting him self wean, but honestly- Im ready, like, really really ready. I've got a skin condition that *really* needs to be treated, and I've been waiting six years to take the medicine needed.

I made it 20 months with Cooper, and now 29 with Tagg. I think I've done well. It's a little sentimental knowing I'll never breastfeed another baby, but it's been a good stretch. Time to give my boobies the break they SO deserve

WTG mama! Weaning is bittersweet - my twins weaned at 13 months, I thought they would go longer but they just didn't want the boob anymore.

WOW!! Way to go mama!! You've done an AMAZING thing for your kiddo's! I hope and pray that I end up nursing my little one that long. I always failed with my kids but with this possibly being our last, I REALLY wanna succeed!

I have no doubt that there were days you felt like calling it quits, but kept on going. I think we all go through that. Yet here you are, SIX YEARS LATER!

WAY TO GO!
