Peach recently turned 8 months old.
She has now reached a milestone that none of the other children had the opportunity to do due to my employment situation. She is the first and last to have the opportunity to continue nursing past 7 months old.
She has now entered unchartered territory.
Moms out there – think about this a little. This is my FOURTH child. There are VERY few things that are a first for me anymore. “What To Expect When Your 8 Month Old Is Still Nursing” is not a book I’ve found in my Nook library. (Not that I’d have time to read it anyway, but that’s another post…)
I keep hearing that the recommendation is that babies now nurse until 2 years. I’m ok with that. I think.
My hubby thinks it’s kind of wierd. My mother thinks she’s nursed long enough already.
I’m more of the opinion that Peach and I will wait and see what happens. Whatever length of time she and I decide to nurse is how long we’ll keep going.
But if Peach cuts me off tomorrow, I’m sure gonna miss my snuggle time.
