    After Georgia resumed breastfeeding, she nursed until she was four-and-a-half years old. Her second and final weaning happened almost without our noticing. One day, when a friend asked me how nursing a preschooler was going, the question took me by surprise. I realized that Georgia hadn’t nursed once that week, or the week before. In fact, I couldn’t remember if she’d nursed in the past month. At that moment, I realized that she had reweaned herself, and that our nursing relationship was now completed.

    So, after yet another crying session with Georgia laden with anger and frustration, I asked her if she wanted to nurse. At once, her tears stopped, and she nodded. The baby was napping, so the time was right to give unweaning a try. We settled on the couch and I cradled her in my arms. Her shoulders relaxed, her face softened, and she nursed. Automatically, her hand went up to my hair, just as it always had.
