No more nursing

Evangeline has finally weened herself. She has not asked to nurse in 3 days. We bad been only nursing in the evening for the past 5 months, but in the past week or so, she has been pulling off the breast and saying no to me, and when I re-offer, she again refuses.
I am very torn on the issue…I am relieved, it’s hot and she’s getting heavy and hard on my back and I was feeling ready to stop…kinda..but not really…cause I love it so much. I love the bond we share while nursing silently in the dim moonlight, I her looking up at me with adoration while nursing…I miss my baby. I feel like I blinked and she became this independent super spirited little girl. I adore her and she is hilarious and becoming a great little child but waaaaa, were has my baby gone?
I knew this day was coming, she hasn’t been interested in nursing much even since 11 months..She is way to busy to sit still and nurse…and I am glad we made it to 18 months…but I guess I still want to feel like she needs me…and I know she does I suppose. I still get lots of hugs and kisses.

My baby is growing up so fast.

β€œLife is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving.” β€” Albert Einstein. When it feels like your world has been shattered, and you have reached rock bottom, you must make a choice: Stay where you are and fade away, or keep moving forward. Thankfully I chose to move forward and was blessed with the two most wonderful children after the death of my first in early labor. Things are looking up.

  1. A friend of mine is still nursing her four year old…. just saying. πŸ˜›

  2. Ok, I am going to be ugly I guess…

    I’m really jealous. Noah is about to turn 2 and I wish to God he would wean already. It’s driving me crazy I think he will nurse till he is 5 if I let him. I want him to stop and I dont want to do it myself.
