Re: Wean? Mom's question from New Beginn
I can't possibly say it better than aprilsmagic did! But I really second the mothering benefits- nothing soothes a miserable child more effectively than the breast! Teething? Bumped head? Skinned knee? Sick? The breast fixes those problems faster than anything else. When my 3 year old accidentally ingested a flake of red pepper and was screaming her head off in our local Korean restaurant, nursing was the only thing that calmed her down and cooled her burning mouth. I didn't expect to have to nurse a 3 year old in public, but when the moment came I was so glad I had that tool in my arsenal!
Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"
