    Default I know this board isn't checked frequently but I had to post this (m)

    My dd, my youngest and last child, just finished nursing 3 nights ago. I am feeling very bittersweet about it. I have nursed or been pregnant for the past 8 years!! I nursed my 8 year old dd for 13 months until becoming pregnant with ds. I nursed him for 2 1/2 years until becoming pregnant with dd, who is 3. She has really hung onto nursing and I know it is time, but I'm feeling emotional about it...I just had to post this. I have to say, breastfeeding all 3 children as long as I did is one of my biggest and most proud accomplishments...

    Congratulations on your great mothering. I bet you have had many close moments with all of your children through breastfeeding.
