    Re: Past 18 months: why?

    Having a toddler is tiring! The nice thing about nursing a toddler is you get to sit down. LOL!

    Anyone ever get positive criticism?

    Not sure if that is the right word to describe it. DS is 13 months old. Right around his first birthday, I was asked almost daily by friends and relatives if he was weaned or if I was going to wean...

  10. Shocked that books and mags define weaning as giving up the bottle!

    I received a new Parenting magazine the other day and on the cover it gave suggestions on "weaning". I opened it up and all it mentioned was how to get baby off of a bottle and onto a sippy cup...
