And just like that, as if in the blink of an eye, DS and I have been nursing for 3 years! :D
My little lactivore is, by my calculations, only just in the last 2 or 3 months getting a little over half of his nutrition from fresh, mostly organic, whole foods. For anyone nursing a child who refuses to eat, this is my sweet boy who effectively only nursed until 2.25. The transition to solids will happen on your child's time. I managed to fill in his nutrition with a perfect food I make in my own body (that's a superpower, if you ask me!) thanks to domperidone from 13 months until the transition began in earnest.
We now nurse anywhere from (I'd hazard) 6 to 8 times per day, sometimes as many as 10 times, with a few feeds overnight for good measure. DS has yet to STTN. Tonight, before going to bed, DS hugged my breasts and said, "I love you boobs!"
I feel incredibly proud and empowered when I look at my amazing 3 year old (!) son because:
