Hi All-
as to your question
Yes, I am pregnant, and I have a history of prelabor contractions starting in the 20th week. I would have definately breastfed through pregnancy, but it is too risky. As it was, I had to spend nearly 3 months in bed because of cervical issues. So, it's Mama-led weaning for us. Boo-hoo.
But we're doing it gradually and with the help of my DH.

Kids. I got two of 'em.

I'm not trying to be evasive, but to resepct the board.

to you! Wishing you and your baby a gentle weaning and wishing you a healthy, happy pregnancy! It sounds like you're doing what needs to be done in a very gentle way.

Thank you Amanda! You and your children are very lucky you've gotten so far in nursing!! Every nurse now is so nostalgic for me. I know Lulu doesn't know that this is her last season of nursing. My dh keeps telling me to concentrate on what we have been able to have (15 months of nursing) and do continue to have ( a wonderful close attached relationship ).

Liz - You have such a wise and wonderful dh! You dd has gotten so much out of your nursing relationship and it has set a wonderful foundation for her physical and emotional health and your beautiful attached relationship with her.

Ah ha! I see... I've been trying to get the very same answer to the very same question and haven't been getting it. I guess it didn't occur to me that it might be inappropriate for the forum?

HappyHSer wrote: "I think the concept of CLW is one that believes all children will ask to nurse when they need it and end breastfeeding at the precisely right time for that child." And that resonates with me, so I guess, using that definition of it, I'm definitely a CLW person. BUT, isn't it a useful and interesting discussion for many people to talk about the meanings of it and why or why not we find certain definitions valid in our own lives? Or, should I go to another forum to have that discussion?

I guess what I'm saying is I hope this discussion doesn't have to take place only in private? It's *exactly* what I've been struggling with in this forum, trying to figure out just what makes CLW different than other breastfeeding styles.

Here's to hoping you'll respond in public. ;-)
