Goodbye, Breastfeeding.

Breastfeeding is leaving us.   I walked into the living room a couple weeks ago and her bags were by the door. I ran to the room where Logan, my 4-year-old, was playing. “Logan!” I shouted, “Did you know about Breastfeeding?” Logan’s bottom lip quivered and tears sprang up as she peered up at me […]

They Say My Toddler Acts Like A Baby

They say my toddler acts like a baby because she still sleeps with me. They say my toddler acts like a baby because she still nurses to sleep. They say my toddler acts like a baby because she “forgets her words” and whines. They say my toddler acts like a baby for refusing to help […]

Nursing In Public

Yup, that’s me: That hippie chick chillin’ at the back of the bus. Might catch Creedence from my headphones if the volume’s turned up enough. Toddler nursing at my right breast, eldest writing to my left. Mm hm, we saw you roll your eyes; but I won’t get upset.   To be honest with you, […]

When My Toddler Weans

The Milk Zombie

Ah, the joys of extended breastfeeding.  What beats a nursing session highlighted by a baseball-sized knee to the gut?  Or a butt in your face during some weird, Cirque Du Soleil-esque position attempt?  Or, my personal fave, the scary voice at 2am, whispering, “Turn over Mommy.”  Whoa.  Breastfeeding on demand requires stamina.  Child-led weaning requires […]
