I can't believe my baby girl is a year old already. I also can't believe she's still nursing 10+ times a day! I'm so proud of our nursing relationship. My first goal was six weeks, which I didn't think I'd make it through. Then at 7 weeks, it got easier and the pain went away, and a week later I got mastitis. After that we endured months of thrush. My family was begging me to wean her, but I never gave up. I love nursing now. It relaxes both of us, calms her down when one or both of us is upset, and gives us a chance to sit down! My family thinks she should be weaned soon, so we're in for some criticism. But I know nursing is best for her and she's not interested in weaning, so why stop now? Thank you so much to LLL and this website; you've been so helpful and encouraging. Now I have to stop the tears that have been threatening me for a week now! Babies grow too fast.
