I never really expected to talk this much about breastfeeding on the blog, but then it became such a huge part of our story.
My goal has always been a year. But then I got close to a year, and Dragon hit a wave of daycare gifted illnesses that made nursing a bit more necessary on the days he couldn’t handle anything but liquids. So we carried on as normal a little longer, and then ever so slowly, we cut out feeds over the past month until this morning I replaced his last feed with a bottle of milk. We snuggled together in bed until, with glee, he finished his slurping and gave me a sloppy morning kiss.
1 year, 1 month, 5 days.
Despite it all, we did it, and now we are done. Ready to move on to the next chapter….
