It's been 4 1/2 weeks, and while he no longer asks to nurse, he still sees my breasts as a comfort. If he gets hurt, or wants cuddle time, he will lay with me on the couch and place his head on my breast, and he still wakes up slowly in the morning by doing the same. He apparently decided that Mommy weaned because "nunnies were 'yuck'", and he will pat my breast and say, "Nunnies 'yuck'."
I'm at 32 weeks now, still on partial bedrest and meds to keep me from going back into labor. If I make it to 37 weeks, I'm kicking around the idea of telling him he can go back to nursing, if he wants. I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that if I hadn't had to wean, he would still be nursing today. I know that if he wants to nurse after the baby comes, I will let him, but I'm sort of torn about if I should outwardly offer it or not.
What do you think?
He may try and decide he is done after all, or he may happily go back to nursing.
As long as either decision of his is okay with you, then I say go for it when the time comes.
The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it. We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.
