My DD will be turning 4 years old in 2 months (O_O) and I've been tandem nursing with her and my now 9 month old DS. ¬†She's down to bedtime nursing. ¬†I never thought we'd make it this long and it's definitely had its ups and downs and I'm ready for us to move to the next stage in our relationship. ¬†Her 4 year birthday will be a special day as it is also her first time doing a ballet recital (which she *loves*). ¬†I was thinking about starting to read some books on weaning (we read at bedtime). ¬†We've been talking about it a lot over the last 2 or 3 weeks but I don't know if she quite understands and I figure a book will help. ¬†I've heard of the LLL book Maggie's Weaning but I wasn't sure if there's anything else out there?
It's hard enough to find books about breastfeeding in general. ¬†I imagine that books about weaning would be even harder to find. ¬†But you may try looking for books about "changes" in general and use that as a way to talk about weaning. ¬†Try looking for books about moving, sleeping in your own bed, etc.
Hope this helps :)
This is the only one I'm aware of:http://www.amazon.com/Maggies-Weaning-Mary-Joan-Deutschbein/dp/0912500581
Lisa¬†¬† L&D RN mama to DS#1 (4-01) DS#2 (9-03) DD (10-05)¬†X2,¬† 10-2011
i saw something-- cannot remember where-- where a mama had used one of those online shut*ERfl* kind of programs/services/photo printing things that make a bound book or scrapbook out of your chosen photos and text,¬† and had gone through baby pictures, and wrote a text that was about the little one growing up.¬† If you have nursing photos, especially, but from what i remember the mama had written things like.. when you were 3 months old all you had was mama's milk (with photos) and then.. picture of baby eating food, with the text something like.. when you were 6 months old, you tried avocado, and you got it everywhere, you liked it but still liked mama's milk, etc. etc.¬†
it was super sweet and seemed like it would be helpful.¬† :)¬†
Is it getting lonely in the echo chamber yet?
