    Smile My LO turned 2.. and still nursing!

    Oh boy, I'm done, done, done, but he's not, not, not..

    I really believe in child led weaning, so I've resigned myself to maybe another year...

    sigh.

    Good job, mama! I can totally relate to feeling done while your baby feels like keeping on- I'm nursing a 25 month-old and some days I feel so impatient, and so ready to have my body back for my sole personal use! Just hang in there, and remember, just because you're doing child-led weaning doesn't mean that you have to nurse every time your LO comes after you with that look in his eye! Distraction, distraction, distraction- that's the name of the game!!!

    yup and finding balance...
    Its ok at age 2 for them to have limits and nursing manners
    If its not working for you change something.

    Congratulations and happy birthday to your little one! (And I once thought anything beyond 6 months was extended...and now we're all at 2 years!)
