yes...16 months and still nursing as if his life depended on it...which it doesn't considering he eats 3 meals a day and snacks in between.
nursing a toddler has some great points and some not so great points. for one, it gives us time to sit and connect and relax amidst all of the exploration and hustle that fills our days. bumped heads and pinched fingers are all better so much faster when quinn gets some "na na." and i know that he is still getting the nutrients that he needs despite being a picky eater at times. having just moved and switched from night work to day work and with all the changes, nursing has been such a source of comfort and consistency for the dude.
on the other hand, the boy is super strong and i think he may suck my nip off one of these days, especially when he hears a truck thundering down the road and must quickly unlatch to point and tell me "ttttrrrruuuccckkk." night nursings have also somewhat lost their appeal. i think i am ready to sleep through the night at last. but certainly, the good continues to outweigh the bad for me.
i don't know when we will wean either. i would like quinn to just wean himself and make it easy on us both. don't see that happening in the near future, but one never knows. i don't want to be nursing if i am pregnant again. i just feel sore thinking about that.
thoughts on nursing? weaning?
