This might be it.  I think I am excited about it too.  Leland hasn't nursed since maybe Sunday morning.  Honestly I can't remember the last time he nursed.  We have been only nursing twice a day and only when he asked.  The past few weeks there are mornings or evenings he doesn't ask for it, or a full 24 hours without asking but then he would always ask again.

I didn't want to push him to wean because I wanted it to be on his terms.  So this may be it.  But I don't want to get too excited about it because he could still ask sometime this week and start up again.  I am excited though because it wasn't very comfortable anymore but not enough to make him stop.  

If this is it, that means we made it 22 months of nursing.  I am very happy with my decision to nurse this long, it has been really good for Leland and me.  I plan to nurse just as long with any other children as long as they are on board.

I am glad I am not upset about this either.  I was pretty sure I would be upset, but I think being pregnant  helps me not be upset about him ending our nursing relationship.


  1. That is awesome that you made it 22 months! We got to 14 and that was it. I'm glad you feel good about it and aren't upset. I was a little sad when Andrew stopped, but it was also a small sense of relief. Great job!!

  2. Hey good on ya for making it to 22 months. And just think you'll have a new sweet babe to nurse in less than a year.
