We’ll get to it when we get to it!!

18 Jun

I have breastfed all my babies.  I weaned Pierce at 11 months because I was pregnant with Will and was so tired I literally couldn’t get off the couch. He took a bottle happily, and that was that. I nursed Will for 13 months, and he weaned easily, as I think we were both ready to stop. And that was that. I have nursed Parker for 19 months, and we’re still going. And I love it. He’s just not ready to wean, and I’m just not a pushy mom. Nor am I really ready to wean him. I don’t really understand why it’s such a big deal to people. He only nurses at nap time and bedtime. He’s not even 2. He’s very likely my last baby. So you know what? We’re going to keep doing this for a while. I’m not going to stress about it, and I’m not going to let other people make me feel bad about it. Just because I choose to do things differently than other people doesn’t mean it’s wrong, or bad. It’s just different.

So, yeah, I still nurse my baby. He might be a toddler to you, but he’s my baby. And we’ll wean some day…when we get to it.
