This post is for moms who are breastfeeding, have breastfed their little ones or is anxiously waiting to breastfeed. Currently, I am nursing my youngest son who is 21 months old. I have been blessed to have nursed my other three children as well. My first born son was weaned by the time he was 14 months old. My second born son was nursed until he was 6 months old (single working mother of two). My daughter was nursed until she was a year old.
Experience, Education and Wisdom
Through experience, education and wisdom, I made the choice to extend nursing him. I am unsure when he will wean or what that looks like for us. And that is okay! It’s not just okay for me, its okay for you too! My baby boy is not on a timeline on when he will be weaned.
There is no specified time frame
To the moms who have nursed their baby for however long, I want to say you did an amazing job not only for your sake but your baby’s sake as well. For the moms who are still on the journey, stay encouraged, relax and keep up the good work! Moms to be, please know that you can do this, your body was made just for such a task as nursing your precious baby. God built our bodies to not only carry and give life, but to sustain it through nursing our babies. You can do this!! God Loves you and your precious little one.
