Re: Thinking about bf after 12 months
I recently had a woman tell me about how her daughter in law weaned her 2-year old because the little girl said "Mommy, your boobie milk is sooooo sweet!", and she thought "enough is enough".
I was so confused by that! I don't have a toddler, but my 11-month old loves to give me "boobie busters", and I can feel her giving me that sentiment. She loves them. I can't wait to hear her say it.
And to echo somthing mentioned above - when I have had a really bad day, nursing my DD is the BEST medicine. It's even true physiologically since there are feel-good hormones released when you nurse. It's better than a glass of wine!
I'm looking forward to nursing in a context of no pump, less or no nursing in public, being able to talk with my nursling, etc.
