Why we’re still nursing at 3 3/4 years of age.
Got my mammogram this morning and when I explained that I’m still nursing but not much, the technician looked at me funny. I explained that my daughter is 3 but that she does still ask to nurse at night and so I am still producing a little milk. She looked at me even funnier. I said, “Every day, I tell her how proud I am that she is a big girl now and not a baby anymore. But then at bedtime, when she’s sleepy, she asks if she can still be my baby.”
Maybe a stronger woman than me could say no to that, and would have weaned by now. But not me. I say “Zoe my sweetheart, you will always be my baby.” And we nurse.
