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.

Nursed 2 years, 2 months! and I think we're done!

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.
