I know I've been bad about keeping up here. :oops: (Preg Ment) I started weaning M earlier than I had originally planned because I was just so sick from pregnancy. So he is now only nursing once a day, at nighttime before bed. Not sure how much longer this will continue...
Anybody still nursing?
Yippee! I didn't think I was the only one, but I know the numbers are dwindling... How often is he nursing? I think Desi would want it more if I was home all day, but right now we're still doing morning and night, and sometimes she'll skip one, but then she'll definitely want it the next time~!
I think my other two were down to twice a day by around this time too. But Grady is a real booby guy.. he's still having it first thing in the morning, morning nap, afternoon nap, bedtime, and sometimes once during the night.. yawn... :) So more like 4x a day or so - which is probably why he doesn't eat that much yet is still a chubby little fellow. :)
I think there are still a few more of us 'boob crew'.. just not too many check this thread that often anymore!
I wonder who will be the last nursing duck? ;)
I think it's down to Grady, Lexi, and Desi...
Congrats on going this long ladies!!! I weined Violet off at about 14 months when I found out I was preg. You girls ROCK!!
I wanted to put down our final nursing stats:
Grady happily nursed until he was 3 years and 2 months old. At that time he was down to once a day, at bedtime.
I think the only reason he weaned himself is that we moved, so his routine completely changed. It was while we were on vacation en route to our new home, that he weaned himself over a few days. He only skipped one day, then nursed one last day for a short time, and after that he refused the next 2 days. I no longer offered after that and he never asked again. It was that easy.
Never thought I'd have a baby nurse 'til they were over 3, but it was easy, natural and ultimately a kind ending for both of us.
In all, I nursed over 6 years with my 3 babes!
