I think I'm done. :)

I feel SO good about it.

My son is 18 months old and has only been nursing before his nap and bedtime for about a month.... Now it's been more like every 2-3 days at bedtime.

He's happy and well adjusted, and eats wonderfully- vegetarian, lots of variety. I'm happy that we nursed for so long and he only had maybe 3 bottles (of my milk) in his life, for date nights.... He now drinks mostly water and some almond or coconut milk out of a regular cup.

BFing my middle son was such a disaster, and I felt like such a FAILURE. I was so scared this time, but it went wonderfully! He was born at home and nursed for his first 6 hours of life, and then whenever he wanted, around the clock since then. We co-slept for a long time, and he nursed on and off all night. Now he sleeps in his room beautifully, through the night since about 15mos! :)

I couldn't have asked for more!

I'll still nurse him when he asks, but I think we are both just about done.

I'm SO SO glad that I got to experience this! Even the hard parts- sleep and thrush and whatnot.... My tubes are tied, I'm moving on, and THANK YOU ALL for the support and advice through this adventure!!
