E is ten months old today. I can’t believe that it’s gone as quickly as it has. He’s more toddler than baby and it’s wonderful to see him learn. He has a personality on him and loves to explore. He’s been more and more interested in our dog. Poor dog.
Today also marks 10 months of nursing! Despite our really rough start, we’ve almost made it to my goal of 12 months. I haven’t been E’s primary source of nutrition for about 2 and a half months, but he still drinks the milk I pump at work and loves to nurse as much as he can when he’s home. How long we choose to nurse is up to him. As long as we make it to a year, I will be happy. Anything after that is icing on the cake.
Did you set nursing goals for yourself when you gave birth? Did you meet them?
