I am feeling sort of melancholy right now.....last night DD was nursing to sleep. She had a nap (unusual for her) so wasn't really sleepy.....she nursed for awhile and then hesitated...I said, "Do you want me to tell you a story?" Nods. So I told her a story, then sang a song and then said, "Let's go to sleep now." I turned over and she tossed and turned a bit, then fell asleep without nursing. During the night when she does wake now...only half the time she nurses back to sleep. I'm thinking if I put forth even a bit of effort, she might wean soon.
This makes me sad.....I've have been nursing or pregnant (or both) for over 15 years now. If she weans......sigh......it will be a first for me.
It never occurred to me that she might wean before I get pregnant, let alone the possibility that I wouldn't ever get pregnant again.
I know it's no reason to keep her nursing if she's ready to wean...I just can't bring myself to work at all at it. I'm scared she wouldn't fight it at all and that would be that. : (
