And I think our breastfeeding journey is now over
It's been a week since she nursed last. She asked a few times over the weekend, mainly at bedtime, and I reminded her she can go to sleep now without nursing first. I still lay with her and hum her a lullaby until she's asleep. She did get upset once a few nights ago and so we talked about how she had boobies for a long time, a lot longer than most kids get to have them.... she said "And don't you ever forget it!!" Awwww I told her that nursing her since she was a little bitty baby was very special time for me and for her, and that I will never, ever forget it. I told her I will always remember it as a very happy time. She seemed satisfied with that answer.
She was only nursing once every few days as it was, usually either at bedtime or first thing in the morning, but she hasn't asked to nurse at all in a few days. I'm glad I don't have to distract her anymore, and that the transition has been relatively smooth, but I'm still sad that my baby is all grown up. I've been weepy for the last few days. Hold me
