I count myself among the truly fortunate to have enjoyed such a mutually beneficial breastfeeding relationship with my child. Low supply, crazy shift work, pumping in a steel mill, we had some pretty big obstacles to overcome; but I’m proud to say that at 16 months old Henry is still nursing.
Our nursing relationship has changed in the past few months, breastmilk is no longer his primary source of nutrition, but a suppliment. We nurse once or twice a day, sometimes skipping a couple days sometimes nursing morning to night. Henry no longer nurses during the night; our choice, and a tough one it was, but it was the right choice for our fmaily. It’s so nice to look back on these photos and see how our nursing relationship has evolved.
