A mama that I love, that I totally respect, that I think is awesome and amazing, wrote a blog post in response to my questions about extended breastfeeding. She is an amazing writer, and I just adore reading her work. Her fans are great folks too, and often have great things to add, so make sure to read the comments as well.
Thank you, Liz. I appreciate you taking the time to answer my question. Once again you have made a difference in the life of a mama.
(OMG I hope she doesn't think I'm a crazy stalker fan. Just a fan. Crazy optional.)
I think the wee one knows that I wrote a blog post about my decision-making regarding continuing to nurse. She has been wanting to nurse every two hours all day. I actually think its because I didn't feed her as much food today. Since we're not "supposed" to be doing baby food purees anymore, but she doesn't really "eat" as much table food - especially when I let her self-feed - then I don't think she ate as much food today as she normally does.
So I might let the thing about purees go for now, and continue to feed them to her while transitioning to table food, because then maybe I won't be up at 1:30 in the morning having nursed her for the third time since we went to sleep :)
