We made it 2 years and 2 months, and in the beginning, I didn't think I'd make it to the six month mark.

I miss it, but it's also a good feeling to know that we had that time together, for as long as we did.

Thanks for the support, you ladies were a great help through my nursing tantrums, lol!

My son had only been nursing at nap time since his 2nd birthday, and I think he would have gone on forever if I had let him. He was only nursing for 5-ish minutes, just long enough to fall asleep, and only from one breast (left), it was becoming very painful, I could tell my supply was next to nothing.

I introduced a new naptime routine and for a week he wanted to hold a breast while drifting off, and after that, nothing!

My dd just turned 2 this month and since we've been on vacation this month, she has wanted to nurse ALL.THE.TIME!! Even in the car while we are driving somewhere "Mama. I want chichi!" Ugh! It's so frustrating sometimes. I work full time and she has been down to went we get home, bedtime and at night. I'm just so ready to be done nursing her.
