My baby is weaned and I am so terribly sad about the whole thing, despite the fact that it was mama-led and not baby-led. But there was little to no protest, so what does that say. I really think he would ask to nurse so that I would give him my undivided attention. So now, if he just gets the attention and snuggles he seems fine. I on the other hand feel like this whole part of my life is now over forever and I just want to weep. And I have wept. We are really seriously thinking no more babies, so that means no more nurslings. And that makes me sad.
18.5 months. Not bad, not bad at all. I think A was closer to 20 months and I was pregnant with O and I could not get him off the boob soon enough. The only tears shed then were tears of physical pain. I really could not imagine being pregnant now though, O still seems like such a baby to me and A has just always been a kid, I really don't think he was ever a baby! At least I still get to rock O to sleep and snuggle him to my heart's content.
This too shall pass and I know next week I will look at my big baby boy running around and wonder what I was thinking nursing that huge child! That is what happened with A, it passes all too fast.
