    What would be wrong with that? Are you hoping Norah doesn't remember?

    Good question, Shelly. I actually love that Em remembers. It makes me feel better actually.

    I agree with PP. It can be wonderful when your little ones have fond memories of nursing. My two older children remember nursing. My son is almost 4 1/2 and he still loves nursing with his little sister. She is only 19 months (20 months this weekend) and I really hope she will nurse long enough to remember tandem nursing with her brother.

    Many little ones wean well before they have memory of nursing or weaning. I always find myself asking why is this so in the USA?

    I am glad you worked through the process with your son and he made his own choice about which milk he preferred.

    thank you all again for your help
    I'm so glad you worked through what sounded like a stressful period with your soon! Way to be patient, loving, and understanding through his strangely angry behavior. I hope things continue to go well!

    I think offering it in a cup was a great compromise! And I hope both of mine remember nursing as well.

    im really hoping to nurse my daughter for 2 yrs.that is my first goal. if i make it that far we will see where it goes from there. my hubby isnt too sure about me going past 2yrs, (he thinks it would be weird to see a toddler breastfeeding) i keep telling him mothers in starving countries breastfeed their kids for alot longer then that to avoid starvation! it is interesting that the usa is so weird on this subject.
