    Default Grateful to still be nursing my 21 month old!

    Some stomach bug is going around, so DD caught it and had diarrhea for a week. She wouldn't eat or drink much of anything, but of course she would nurse!

    DD's BFF ended up getting sick and wouldn't eat or drink anything. I felt so bad for my friend trying to squirt water into her DD's mouth with a syringe and still ending up in the ER because she was dehydrated.

    My friend thinks it's weird that I'm still nursing, but after the experience with her DD she is finally (maybe a little) starting to understand the benefits.

    This is just one reason why nursing a toddler is wonderful!
