Re: Do you hide the fact that you are still nursing?
I stopped NIP when dd1 was around 12 mths, most of my friends had weaned their babies and no one seemed to understand. It wasn't really a big deal, she never asked when we were out anyway. A few close friends knew that she still nursed but not many. Interesting tho, the most supportive friend that I had was one who only nursed for 6 weeks. She was always saying what a good job I was doing and never minded listening when I had trouble. I was lucky tho since neither family minded. She self-weaned when I was pg with dd2 and it was a bit sad but it seemed like she was ready. I didn't do a thing to stop her (besides having less milk of course). I have had to pump a lot to keep the supply up for dd2 and dd1 is enjoying mommy's milk in her sippy cup! I know it is unlikely that I will ever give that milk to dd2 so why not give it to dd1.
Mom to Abigail, born May 3rd, 2007 (self-weaned at 27 mths) and Charlotte, born Nov. 24th, 2009. Both reflux babies and EBF. Charlotte weighs 31 lbs at 26 mths.
