Re: Nursing my 2.5 y.o. son
Welcome, to LLL, to the world of toddler nursing and to the new life that will be yours as you find your way in life without the pain of a dysfunctional relationship.
My son is bit over 2 1/2 and still nurses quite a bit. I had actually believed, before he was born, that I would begin to feel uncomfortable nursing after about age 2. I couldn't really have said why, but that was what I thought at the time. Now I laugh to think that I was so unaware of the nature of a nursing relationship -- that it is a RELATIONSHIP, with two individuals involved, two sets of needs and desires and a constant evolution.
I'm so glad you have found the strength and courage to do what you feel is best for your child, as well as for yourself. May your future be full of joy and liberation!

Those who say it can't be done should not interrupt the person doing it.
