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.
