I know a lot of people who breastfeed to a year and then feel relieved to be done. Nothing wrong with that – good job for giving your baby a whole year or awesome nutrients! I have planned from the beginning to go around 18 months with Max, up to two years or until I get pregnant again whichever comes first. But I think my little man may have other plans and I am sad about it. He is nursing less and less. Often when I offer he latches on but pops off after a minute and squirms away. Last night I was wide awake at 2am hoping he would wake up soon because my boobs felt like they were going to explode. He nurses well first thing in the morning and once or twice at night. The rest of the day it is difficult to get him to focus. Max is a voracious eater of solids at least. He drinks very little while I am at work from a bottle. I love breastfeeding- its our special time together and will be sad if it ends soon. Not to mention I am pretty sure that has what has kept him healthy through M having bad colds twice this month. It was so hard and overwhelming in the beginning- it hurt, I got mastitis, he wanted to eat every 30 minutes etc but now it is easy and special. The one upside is I have been able to cut down to pumping once at work instead of twice which saves me a lot of time. I am hoping we can find a way to continue on for another six or seven months but it is not entirely up to me.
