A Year Of Breastfeeding


As of today, we have been breastfeeding for ONE YEAR, with no signs of stopping! I have officially kept my resolution made last January.

Our nursing career got off to a rough start, but despite all of our issues, we stuck it out & I believe it's one of the most important things I've ever done in my life. My innate stubbornness paid off in the end & I'm thrilled!

Thank you to my best friend for supporting me 100% and helping me out when I was so frustrated. Thank you to my partner, who was at my side the entire time, who believed in me & guided me through my frustrations. And thank you to baby G, who never gave up & is now a bonafide milkaholic.

A year & beyond!

I'm really not sure what my stance used to be on 'extended nursing', but I really can't see us stopping any time in the near future.

Two years? Three year? I'm game. This breastaurant is open for business.

Wesley weened himself when he turned one! I was all ready to keep going, and did try my best to, but he was done with it. It made me sad. :(

bravo...both my kids weaned themselves. Jude at 11 mths (i think my milk changed because i was newly pregnant) and Delia at 15 mths. Often, especially with Dels i wished i was still nursing during the the difficult toddler years but alas they were ready when they were ready.

I truly believe breastfeeding is one of the most important gifts you can give your baby. My son had enough by the time he was ten months and I began weaning my daughter at eighteen months, I wanted to sleep through the night. They were both very healthy toddlers best of all neither of them ever had an ear infection. Your daughter is very lucky.
