"Yay! Only a few weeks longer till your free of nursing" I've been getting this comment a lot lately. Why? Because my twins will soon be 1. Appearently at 1 I am to cut them off, throw in the towel and tell them "No more num nums!". Why do people feel this way? The WHO recommends breastfeeding until 2 or longer. I am a huge believer and letting the child decide when they are ready. For my oldest that was at 13mos. I was devastated and cried my eyes out, but in the end he decided he was ready to be done. The twins are still nursing 6-7 times a day. I do not see weaning any time soon, and I am okay with that!
This makes it worth it!
