Thanks. I work hard to remember that. Which reminds me, I need to get dh to take more nursing pics.

I don't have any words of advice since my dd is only 8 months old but you didn't ask for advice. Does it help to know that hearing about you nursing your 2 year old inspires me to keep going for at least that long with my dd. I have tough days (and nights) nursing too and there are times when I feel I'll never make it til she's two but reading your posts about breastfeeding really inspire me.

that's all

It does help. A lot really.

Breastfeeding a child is a journey. Like any journey it has its ups and its downs. Somehow a journey is easier if you know others are on it with you. It helps a great deal to know that my journey has eased someone elses', even in a small way.

Angela my ds sounds just like your dd. He definitely nurses more than a newborn at this point and it's driving me nuts lately. I am hoping he will be ready to share 6 months from now. I just keep telling myself he won't be nursing forever and they grow up so quickly.

That would be me ... I think. My son will be 3 in December, still nursing like crazy: . And I just took a pregnancy test that had a slightly pink line. So I am pretty sure that is me.

OP, I know exactly what you are talking about with the body part rearrangements You are definitely NOT alone in this

It really is, isn't it! And social support truly does alleviate the occasional burden of an "unusual" journey...nursing an older, demading toddler/child!

your post sounds a lot like my dd last year...

i tried pumping today and got no milk in the bottle, and 1 drop in the shield itself... i think we are almost done :

Oh my dd still thinks my body is her own- she's 3. This is MY booboo mama- you can't have any! She's sometimes "share" with dh (he pretends to nurse and she pats his head until she decides it's enough and shoves him out of the way ). Or her most recent obsession- leave the booboo open mama! Um, honey I have to go *outside* not going to happen. LOL Insert tantrum here X : Or she'll pat my boob and if I ask her to stop she'll tell me it's her booboo and it doesn't hurt to pat it- at all! Ah, the joys of a talking nursling.

Oh, Angela, I hear ya! My dd is a nursing fiend herself, and sometimes I tell DH that the only thing she wants me for is my boobs! s and sympathy!
