Have you ever seen this clip from Sesame Street? It is of a mom breastfeeding her baby and Big Bird asking about it. I think it is so sweet.
I get some raised eyebrows about the fact that Bridget is still nursing at 19 months. But it works for us. She loves to nurse, and while sometimes it is inconvenient for me, I do enjoy providing for her in this way. With our infertility issues, then having a rough birthing experience, breastfeeding has been very healing for me. It gave me a little more faith in my body - that my body could actually function the way it was intended to!
Even though I do look forward to weaning Bridget someday (she will wean, right?!), I am thankful everyday that I have been able to breastfeed.
