And the post you never thought I'd make.... WEANING COMPLETE!

I think.

Andrew hasn't nursed since the early morning hours of this past Friday. He went all day Friday and I had Rob put him to bed and then he slept the night--yesterday was a repeat of that.

Yes, I feel just slightly full today but it's not too bad because, as you remember, he was barely getting anything anyway. He really had to work for what he did get, and he sucked so hard it actually was starting to be uncomfortable for me.

I can be happy that he made it 2 years, 1 month, and one week. :) And now, I can enjoy a 5 month break before the next one gets here, but I really can't wait to nurse a newborn again!

Congrats on nursing so long! That is wonderful that you could do that for Andrew!

yay! sounds like it was stressfree for andrew too! Enjoy your 5 months off. Sounds like just enough time to let your nipples soften so it can hurt like hell for a couple weeks again. :) oh, I am not looking forward to that part!

Congrats!! On nursing so long and on stopping. A warning: when you nurse your newborn, be sure that you hold her like a newborn and are very careful about positioning. Sometimes moms get lax with that if they're nursing their second. Granted, my newborn had other issues, but even so, when I was more careful about position, it was less painful.

I'm glad your boobies get a little break until the next baby comes! I think it's wonderful you were able to nurse him so long and give him the best nutrition possible! I can't wait to see what the new baby looks like! :)

Congrats on nursing so long! I am gonna need some pointers I think, Gracee is 9 months and I don't see us stopping at 12 months. I would love to make to two years!

Thank you!

And Laura, the only advice I have is if you love the nursing relationship, just keep going! There are many benefits to nursing past a year--the immunities don't stop at one. My only goal was one year, and when we surpassed it, I kept thinking he'd be sick of it, and then another month would go by....I set my first goal at 15 months, then 18, then 21...haha, finally I was at 2 years.
