    Default A Happy End

    I suprised and happy that Odin decided it was time to wean all on his own. Serioiusly, I think he would have gone on forever if Archer had not come into the picture. The last month he was down to nursing once a day before nap. And then he stopped asking for nursing and started talking more about how it was Archer's milk.

    Our last session was about 2 weeks ago while Archer was playing on the floor. He was tired and frustrated so I asked him if he wanted to nurse. He latched on and was so squirmy. After about a minute he unlatched and said, "Archer turn, Archer nana (aka: nurse), Odin all done". And that was it Since then he hasn't nursed and pretty much tells me the same thing every time. He even talks to Archer in a little baby voice and asks "Archer, mommy nana?" And tells me over and over when he 'thinks' Archer wants to nurse. LOL, its very sweet and such a awesome way for him to pass on the boobie torch.

    Its kinda funny to be done nursing one kiddo but not totally done nursing because of nursing a baby. Archer is not as much of a boobie addict. He nurses to eat and that is pretty much it so I doubt he will nurse as long as Odin did. But after having as much trouble as I did nursing Ryland and only making it 6 months I am beyond thrilled to have gone 23 months with Odin!!!!

    Oh Joy that is fantastic that he nursed for so long and then decided quite happily that he was done on his own. So beautiful!
    Very sweet how he "passed" it on to his baby brother.

    So sweet! Congrats on 2 years of nursing with Odin and 6 months of tandem nursing (I like to round up )!!!

    You've kept me going this last year. I really hope mine and Teagan's nursing relationship ends similarly. I'm guessing she'll be closer to 3-4 though before she passes the torch to Sprog.

    You rock!
