The End.

Sloan is done nursing. It was a gradual process, but it's done now. 25 months and a handful of days and she is done. I wasn't sure how it would make me feel, but it mostly makes me sad. It means she is that much more grown up. :(

Luckily it was a very gradual process and I didn't have any discomfort, or need to pump or anything. Since moving into the spare room she has nursed less and less and wasn't asking for it anymore so I just stopped offering. The other day I tried to nurse her because I felt a little engorged on one side after 3 days of not nursing and she acted like I was crazy...so ya...she's done, and luckily that feeling just went away.

I loved the bond we created and the ease of leaving the house with a baby and a few diapers and just my boobs! I will miss it for sure!

  1. I guess it's the end of an era! It's hard to believe she is a little girl now and not a baby. I am sure though you will have many more special bonding opportunities going forward. Give her a hug from me! xo

  2. It's amazing that at a turning point when a little girl is growing up, she randomly thinks nursing is "crazy". Like, "mom, please! I'm a big girl now!"
    When only 3 days pervious, it was normal.
    In a blink, she will be 16 and wearing red fake nails. Trust me on this one, Joelene ;)
