Thread: I've Decided!

    Default I've Decided!

    I've Decided! My New Year's resolution will be to nurse my son until he is atleast 24 months old. He is only 6 months now, but I feel it is important to set this goal as a commitment to him and his health. Has anyone else set and met their goal for bf?

    Congrats momma! That is a very realistic goal to set for your nursling.

    Toddler nursing is quite rewarding!

    I hoped to nurse until my daughter was at least 2 and was able to do it. Congrats on making it 6 months and good for you for deciding to go until 2!

    I agree with pp, there is nothing like nursing a toddler. It is so fun and sweet. I am still nursing my 26 month old, although I am pregnant and he isn't getting much of anything. That is a great new years goal!

    Nursing a six month old baby is much different than nursing a toddler. Your goal is wonderful. I would recommend reading Norma Bumgarner's, Mothering Your Nursing Toddler. It is a great read for any one considering nursing into toddlerhood.

    Beat of Luck!!

    I am hoping 2 is just a point I will get to and then surpass, my mother nursed my brother and sister untill they we over 30 months old, and they were twins! Lots of support from family is the key in this goal, and I am thankful to have them.

    My goal was to nurse until DS was 2. He'll be 2 on Monday and I don't see any end in sight at the moment.

    You've definately set an awesome goal! Good luck!
