Two days!!!

Ben has not nursed for two days. I am so proud of my big boy. He has whined some and asked to nurse but he is making the adjustment OK. I wanted to let him lead his own weaning experience but this mom is tired!!! I was willing to let him wait till he was 2 years old but here we go with weaning......

Weaning Ben

I am ready. Ben would argue the case. He is 22 months old. He nurses just about anytime I sit down and all night long. I am exhausted. To top it off my health has not been 100% lately. I love my little boy but I am ready to end our nursing relationship. I have nursed him almost twice as long as I have nursed my other kids. He has thrived. I felt a bit guilty when I wanted to wean when he was younger. But now he seems to understand when I say no, he just doesn't like it. We will see how it goes. I start a new job next week so we will be seperated more so that will help except he is used to attacking me when I get home.
