am I actually *nursing* my 5 year old...he takes a nip in the morning when he wakes up?<br><br>
Ugh. All that crap in the media about older kids nursing seemed so obsolete a year ago...and here I am *nursing* a 5yr old.<br><br>
Am I the only one?

You are not alone.<br><br>
I haven't had the pleasure of nursing that long. My currently nursling is only 3 months old so we'll see <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">, but there is a support thread here for mothers who are nursing older kids.<br><br>
Here is the link:<br><br><a href="http://mothering.com/discussions/showthread.php?s=&threadid=49589" target="_blank">http://mothering.com/discussions/sho...threadid=49589</a><br><br>
Welcome to the boards!<br><br><i>edited to fix the link b/c it wasn't working properly - seems fine now!</i>

If DD keeps going at the rate she's going, we'll be joining you in April.<br><br>
BTDT, in a way it's no big deal. Your DS only nurses a bit in the morning; my DS only nursed to go to sleep...then tapered down to next to nothing, then stopped.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> You're seeing the long slow process of growth.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
OTOH it is a big deal to perservere in this cultural climate, isn't it?<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

The ignorance really dawns on me when my dad asks incredulously "are you *still* nursing him"...meaning my 2.5yr old!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">:<br><br>
...thanks for the link<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">
