Hi everyone, thanks for stopping by!

Things are a bit of a mess over here right now and I am in the process of repairing broken links and photos.  You are definitely welcome to poke around as I am working behind the scenes. I am still working hard to get things fixed around here. All posts from 2014, 2013 and most of 2012 should be working without any problems now.  




As Ellie’s 1st Birthday approaches and she eats more regular meals throughout the day and drinks from a sippy cup, I am preparing myself mentally to wean her.  Right now she mainly nurse when she wakes up in the morning and at night right before she goes to be.  I do still nurse her to comfort her throughout the did if she needs to be comforted.  breastfeeding, weaning, nursing, baby

I am not pushing to wean her, not by any means. Ellie is my last baby so I am in no rush.
I love our time together and the extra snuggles I get when she is nursing.
With Alexander I was forced to wean him when he turned 1 because I was really sick and between the medication and being ill, I just couldn’t do it. Thankfully we had made it all the way through the first year.
With Ellie, I’m just not ready and I think I am going to let her decide when it is time.

I think part of me also wants to continue to nurse because Ellie was a preemie and we struggled a lot with nursing in the beginning and now we are pros.

I know I can’t nurse her forever but I also know that neither of us is ready for it to end.
Thankfully I have a husband who is supportive and will understand if I choose to continue.

How old was your little one when you decided to wean?
