I have been nursing my DD for 14.5 months now. I returned to work about a month ago and my daughter now just nurses in the morning befoe we go to the sitter and as much as she wants in the evening and on demand during the weekend.
Some evenings she nurses only before bed, some evenings it is 4-5 times between whne we get home and she goes to bed. What ever works for her is good for me. Quite frankly it is a good excuse to let hubby make dinner!
On the weekends she often goes most of the day with out nursing but other times it is quite often. Again what ever she needs is good for me.
What annoys me is the people who say, "oh you're still nursing?" "your supply must be going way down." Well of course it is going down. So is her demand! It's all about supply and demand people. When she demands it my body, in the last 14.5 months, has figured out what to supply.
I hope to make it to 2 years with my daughter but for sure I plan to at least make it though the nasty flu season. If only people who stop offering their two cents worth!
Thanks for letting me rant!
