Morgan hasn't asked to nurse in three days. She was down to nursing only during the middle of the night 1-2 times. I was nursing her if she asked, but didn't offer. She started skipping days a few weeks ago and then was sick last week so was nursing consistantly and hasn't asked the last three days. It is bitter-sweet because she is my last baby. I never thought I would nurse this long though...almost 2 years
Has your LO stopped nursing for a period of time this late and then started up again? I am thinking I would try and redirect her if she asked. I can't have much milk in there. I feel pretty much dried up...lol
I am OK with it, but sad too because I know I will never nurse again (unless I am one of the "1 of 1,000 per year" that get preggo after the big V...lol). I can't imaging it being a strike, but you never know! I really didn't think she would stop on her own. I thought I would have to force the issue eventually. OK, getting teary-eyed here.....blah
Congrats on a year and 11 months! You did awesome and she ended it under her terms which is wonderful! *hugs*
Congrats on making it to 2 years! You've given her a irreplaceable gift and you'll always be able to look back and cherish it. I'm at the point where I'd be OK if DD up and quit but I'm sticking it out until she weans on her own (or at least without more than a tiny bit of encouragement). That was my ultimate goal and I'm sticking to it. I'm planning on doing it all over again one more time though. I guarantee you it'll be a different story when my next and final baby weans.
