Well, we have made it! DD turned one this weekend, so I suppose we are now officially EBFing. I remember those difficult first few weeks of Bfing, just hoping I could make it to my goal of 6 months. Ha ha! Here we are a year later, with no thoughts of stopping anytime soon!
I just wanted to say hello and formally introduce myself. My name is Andrea, and my daughter and I continue to share a wonderful nursing relationship. We have a few friends who have nursed their little ones, but only one who plans to allow her child to self-wean. I have been lurking here for a bit, trying to find ways to explain to our friends and family why we will continue to nurse for as long as DD wishes. Thank you all for your wonderful suggestions in this area. I am looking forward to learning more from all of the experienced EBFing mommies here!
