    Default We had a weaning party!

    So, Saturday my dd, 3 years and 5 months, was sitting on the kitchen counter singing to herself while I washed dishes when she stopped and said, "Hey, mom. I don't nurse anymore."
    I said, "Really? You're all done?"
    "Yeah."
    "Wow. Big girl. Want to tell Daddy?"
    "Yeah."
    On her way to tell her dad, she had another thought. "I guess it's time for my party." Dad suggested next weekend. She wanted it This weekend. So yesterday (Sunday) she picked out a cake at the store and had her weaning party.

    That is so sweet! I guess she was ready for that party!
    Sounds silly of little old me to say, but I am proud of you, mama!

    Question Re: We had a weaning party!

    wow...what a positive experience. How did you instill that notion in her? I am trying to lead my leading one to weaning (25 months) and he looks at me like I am crazy! I know that nursing longer is ok, and we are partially weaned (2-4 times per day, ok that is not MY idea of partial but in his little brain it is! ) I have been bringing up the idea that big boys don't need to nurse so often...he just says "NO". Also, how did you feel once it was over? I would be interested in your feedback. Thanks & Congratulations on a Job well done!
