    Default I think its time for us...

    I *thought* I'd have mixed feelings about this...but I'm actually okay with it. Joey hasn't asked to nurse in several days. I've offered, but she just smiles and shakes her head "no". Part of me is a little sad...but not necessarily just because she isn't nursing...but because she isn't a baby anymore. I actually cried when I went down the baby aisle in Target the other day. I realized that we don't need the breastpump, lansinoh, pacis, etc and that we are also fast growing out of diapers as well. I think part of me is sad because I really really want another baby...but the timing just isn't right. I have school to finish and it would just be too hard.

    BUT...I WILL nurse her one last time on her 2nd birthday...just so I can say I made it to 2yrs I NEVER, in my wildest dream, thought that I'd make it this far. Never. I've been on domperidone for almost 15mos for low supply, and so I'd didn't think that I could nurse her until 2

    I really do have all of you LLLadies to thank. Without y'alls love, support, and encouragement...I wouldn't have made our goal. I can say that this has been an easy and very natural progression with us.

    And who knows...maybe she'll suprise me this next week and want to nurse again...and that will be ok with me too. But if this is it for her, I will be ok with that too

    Congrats on making it this far Leslie! I'm glad the weaning is going well for both of you. I'm in the process of weaning DS as well, so I'm experiencing the same emotions as you.

    You've done such an incredible thing with and for her, and for you not to have thought you'd be able to makes it even more special. Good job, mama!

    Thanks LLLadies. She has actually nursed a few times since I posted this. She still isn't really asking...but I am still offering. I think we will nurse through this month and then maybe I'll give her a gentle nudge. I am actually really excited that my baby girl is growing up. She is such a fun kid, and I LOVE her personality
