So I am proud to say my LO turned 4 years old on 1/29 and I ccan't believe we still nurse on occasion. I was one of those moms who had a limit of 2 years when I thought of weaning, but once we hit that mark I knew I couldn't stop, nor was my son ready.
Once he hit his 4th birthday I let him know that when his sister gets here (I am due with my 2nd child on May 1st) that we need to slow down on nursing because sissy will need most of my attention in the nursing department (and if she's anything like her big brother she'll want to nurse ALL.THE.TIME, which I'm totally okay with).
I noticed just over the last few days he hasn't really asked to nurse, and when we go to bed he might ask once, but I give it a few minutes and he usually falls right asleep on his own without nursing. I laid in bed last night staring at his gorgeous locks of blonde hair, and sweet sleepy face. I couldn't believe we've made it this long, but I started to tear up knowing this might be the end of our nursing journey, and that he truly is growing up.
I hope his sister is as good of a nursing child as he was. Makes me so proud, I just had to share
