So, I'm a little sad because I'm going to have a for real "toddler" in a week. I'm excited though because we made it a whole year and I'm still wanting to bf. There have been moments of course, but as a whole, I loooove nursing. I guess we'll be in the extended breasfeeding forum. I feel like I'm graduating! I just wanted to share with some of you that, though the beginning was a little rough, I can't imagine weaning. I was reading the post about being afraid to bf. I remember that I was so excited the first time I leaked colostrum. I called my mw and told her! I was showing my dh. What a dork! I knew it's what I was going to do and I was so excited for it. The first few weeks we had to figure it out, but it was so worth it. I love how attached to me my dd is. (Not all the time, some days I want to hide!) I love that she needs me and only I can do it for her. I know that one day she won't. Anyway.... I just wanted to share that my first year nursing has been one of ups, downs and I'm so glad I had this experience. Happy Nursiversary to all you July Babies and Moms!!!

If you makes you feel any better - I dont think a one year old is a toddler! lol (I know a lot of people on this forum do, but they are just confused - Toddler is a TWO year old <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"> lol)...<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy">:

Congrats!<br><br>
We had a rough start also, and I know I was so happy I made it through the first year--and now we're on our way to 2 years. So, so worth the tough moments, and the good parts definitely outshine the bad ones! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">
