Tonight was the first night since my son was born more than 15 months ago that I didn't nurse him to sleep. For about a week he has been not really nursing like he usually did at bed time. He would fuss, pull off, look over at his crib and point. Tonight he actually went to his crib and wanted to be put in it. When I did he laid down and so I just... left. No tears, no fussing, he just went right to sleep!! I might have had a few tears in my eyes, though.
He had already cut out morning and nap time feeds in the past few weeks, so bedtime was the only one left. I think I could have forced the issue tonight but I decided to let him dictate matters. We will see if it continues tomorrow, but I have a feeling he is all done.
Its definitely a bitter-sweet feeling. I am excited that he is growing up, but sad that nursing is over. I haven't come here much lately b/c busy and things were going great. But this forum was a life saver for me early on and through my pumping trials and tribulations! Thanks so much ladies, for all the support all of you provide!
