Five Years Old!

My baby boy is five years old today! He's at his dad's this week, so I won't get to celebrate with him until Sunday. He does nurse most nights before bed when he's here. My goal with him was at least two years and as long as he wanted to go beyond. I am so glad that I could continue providing him this comfort, security, and immunity for this long, especially through the separation of myself and his dad. Nursing was the only thing that remained constant when that all happened. I have no idea if his dad knows that he still nurses and I don't care. It is what is best for Johnathan and I will continue until he no longer needs it. I don't forsee him weaning until his adult teeth start coming in and his jaw and latch change. I expect that will be within the next few months to a year.

Here are some recent pictures of him.  : )

Thank you! I never would have considered allowing him to wean on his own if I hadn't learned so much from you and so many others when I first joined CafeMom almost 6 years ago.
