I am feeling torn I had to pin Shiloh down to keep him nursing until 13mos Joey is starting to get the same way. I feel like I have all but dried up. I don't feel a let-down anymore, and I don't hear her swallowing at all. The only time I can get her to nurse for more that 10 seconds is if she's dead asleep.
For the last month I have had to wait until she is asleep and then pick her up to get her to nurse. I have often wondered why I keep doing it if she is just as happy without nursing
On the one hand, it makes me sad because I had this internal goal to make it to 2yrs after feeling like I had "failed" Shiloh by only nursing him 13mos...and on the other hand...nursing has never been for us what I know it is to some on this forum. For us, I think nursing has been more about food/nutrition that about solely comfort....as is evidenced by the fact that both of my children don't need nursing to be comforted. And that's OK...because that's how I guess I "trained" them to be but now I am feeling strangely sad.
I'm just not sure if I should keep picking her up out of a dead sleep to nurse her, or if I should just let this be the end
