    Well, it looks like we're weaned! LO will be 22 months next Wednesday!! It's a bittersweet ending - It's time and I think we both were ready, but it's hard to believe it's over. We went through a lot in the beginning with her being in the NICU for 3 weeks, but we made it work. I'm so thankful I was able to provide for her for so long.

    To those who are nursing - keep up the good work!

    Just thought I'd share! Have a wonderful day!

    aww, I envy you (in a good way) Nursing to 22 months is amazing, I had planned on allowing DD to tell me when she was done but I thought that wold be somewhere around her age now, not at 12.5 months. My pregnancy definitely changed her mind on my milk! I hope this time I will be able to nurse longer, people like you are my heros! lol!

    Congrats! Way to go! I nursed my DS until he was 22 months as well. I remember him asking me one time to nurse after we stopped and I told him the milk was all gone, he replied "Can we pour the milk from my cup in there!!"
    My DD is now 18 months old and we are still going strong.

    That is awesome Lisa! When we weaned at 14 mo it was definitely bittersweet. I was glad to be done but truly missed that one on one snuggling time with Hayden.

    Congrats on making it 22 mo and succeeding through a 3 week NICU stay. That is amazing!
