I have a confession to make: my daughter is 2 years old and she’s still breastfeeding. Actually, she’s pushing 2½. She’ll be 28 months next week, and from the way things are going, it doesn’t look like she’s interested in giving up the boob any time soon.
But I’m not complaining, at least not right this second. Sure, there are days when I wish she was done and over with it, but for the most part, I like the close bond we have when I’m nursing her…plus I haven’t lost all the baby weight yet. I kid, I kid!
So how long will we keep this up? I nursed my son until he was 29 months old, so maybe it’ll be the same this time around. I really don’t know. All I know is that sooner or later there will come a time when my daughter will decide she no longer wants to breastfeed. In the meantime, I’ll just enjoy this special time with her before it ends.
What about you? How long did you nurse your child? Tell us in the comments below.
