    I don't know where we are, exactly. Wyatt has definitely given up his nighttime nursies. 100%. But he still asks once a day most days, at varying times, and I am granting his request (except for once when he asked at a really bad time, and I put him off, but then later I offered a make-up session to him, which he seemed grateful for). He seems to be "checking [my] nursies" now, much more frequently, which I think fulfills his desire for them without actually nursing. He will ask to check my nursies and then cup his hands around them, gently put his fingers on either side of my nipple, eye them VERY closely, and then say "kind of fine." He still seems super into them, but less like he needs them for nursing, and more like he just needs them. I think we're pretty close to him moving on entirely.

    Lulu likes to hold them, especially when tired.

    MK doesn't remember nursing but still likes to just hold them when we cuddle. Always has. Maybe the instinct never goes away.

    I don't think it does. K will still rub her cheek on them when we snuggle.

    Aw, you guys are making me tear up. I totally want to think that my son will always have the feeling of coming home when he rests his cheek against my chest.

    I remember sitting on my mom's lap at 14 (a very, very rare thing) while getting my immunizations for the 3rd time! (don't ask) and feeling comforted by sitting there resting my head on her bosom (because that woman has a bosom) while they poked me up.
