I Love...Nursing

N is 18 months old now, and still nursing, sometimes only a couple of times a day, and other days it seems like she's tugging at my shirt every hour. I thought I'd be doing it for a year- but soon after she was born I knew it would be longer- whenever she's in pain, or grouchy, or just out of sorts we can nurse and the quiet cuddle time acts like a re-set switch. I know that we'll stop around her second birthday, or sooner if wants to, but for now I'm just enjoying our quiet time- and loving that I can soothe almost anything this way, because there won't always be such an easy fix to her problems, not to mention an easy way to distract her while I'm busy!

  1. I nursed Nora until she was 15 months. She was ready to be done and I was too but sometimes I still miss it. What a special time it was!
