    Smile 4 years today

    my boy turned 4 today, and despite a number of times especially during the last year when I was extremly doubtful if I wanted to continue, we are still in a nursing relationship. He really only nurses once a day (I am happy to report he gave up on the much hated morning one), and usually only the left breast, but I have no regrets and think I can actually handle another year of it if he wants to

    forgot to add, I asked him if milk still comes out ( I do wonder sometimes because he only drinks once at night, for a few minutes and this for quite awhile now). He said yes, and that it tastes of strawberry butter milk.

    That is wonderful! Those days happen for me that I can hardly take it anymore but only once in awhile. Most of the time I am happy to still be nursing You are an inspiration to other mothers allowing your son to self wean and what a wonderful thing to do for your son!
