ds forgot how to latch when i was 38 weeks pregnant, and i thought that meant he was done with nursing... well over 3 months later, at 31 months, he's still asking to nurse once or twice a week, and if it's convenient for me i oblige and let him do his thing, which doesn't involve latching.

today he asked after lunch and i plopped him in my lap and nursed him, and it seems like at time he may have been latched on... it was hard to tell if he was swallowing or not. but i started seeing his eyes drooping and realized i was nursing him to sleep. he was probably on for 15 or 20 minutes... and then i carried all 32.5lbs of him upstairs and put him to bed and snuggled him for a minute

i'm just so happy to be able to continue to give him what he wants. i think our nursing limbo is going to go on for a while
