To wean or not to wean? Well, eventually my baby (toddler) will be weaned, lol! So there is no question about that. But, I don’t know when to wean him. I am thankful that I have been able to nurse him going on 22 months!! It is a blessing to be able to nourish him and have this unexplained bond between him and me. My other three were not nursed this long.
Initially, my goal was 1 year, max. Then, as we approached the 1 year mark, I did not want to wean him. 18 months rolls around and the thought of weaning him didn’t cross my mind. So here we are, approaching another milestone, age 2! I plan on nursing him for (IDK) how long. People would ask me and I would give an age, but now my response is, ” I do not know.” Because I truly don’t know.
So here is to you, nursing momma or soon-to be nursing momma (congrats, btw!), nurse as long as mom and baby are happy! You don’t have to look at the calendar or listen to well-meaning family, friends or perfect strangers!
