I'm a breast feeding momma. Not currently, but I am excited to get to do it again.
My first I only exclusively bfed for 2 months, then it was half me have formula (my milk supply crashed) and then from that point on it was a very slow down hill. His last nursing session was at 8 months after we had been on bed time only nursing for about 2 months.
My second I exclusively bfed until 6 months when we introduced a little solid food and started a bed time bottle of formula (hoping it would help him sleep longer). I still nursed him every 2-4 hours at night until he was about 10 months old, then we did a gradual wean and were down to once at bed time when he was 12 months old. He fully weaned shortly after that.
Daniel (DS#2) is now 2.5, so about 20 months since his last nursing session.
The past few days when he gets upset about something I have the sudden urge to lift my shirt and comfort nurse him. Is that strange? I guess my nurture nature is starting to take place. I'm not sure he'd know what I was doing if I actually WERE to do it. and I'm sure DH would find it inappropriate.
Anyway, can anyone relate to this, um, spontaneous instinct?
