    Default Almost to one, thanks to my husband?

    Yes, you read that right. Sunday is Ryan's 1st birthday and we are still breastfeeding with no end in sight. So why did I give my husband credit too? Because he gently encouraged me to continue in the beginning when times were hard, he listened without comment when I was frustrated and told me over and over that I was doing a great job. He never expressed doubt. He defended our parenting choices. And he works his tail off so I can stay home and be with our baby. I told him all this last night and I think he blushed, lol.

    I also could not have done it without this board, thank you so much ladies.

    I was only going to breastfeed for 6 weeks, then 3 months, then I was totally going to switch to formula at 6 months, and then I was def. weaning at a year. Now when people ask when I am weaning my answer is "When Ryan and I choose to do so and not before."

    THANK YOU LLL LADIES for helping me see that!!!!!

    Yay to your family!!! I give my hubby credit too. He encouraged me without making me feel more pressure, which can be hard to do, especially with all those hormones going ever which way!
