Breastfeeding a Toddler

I knew very early in my pregnancy that I wanted to breastfeed my daughter, Zoe. So from unang yakap to the very first latch til now that she’s almost three we’re still exclusively breastfeeding. Yes, breastfeeding is a choice. But i hope pregnant mommas will choose to breastfeed their little ones for the first 6 months.

I planned to stop around the two year mark. But as that milestone rolled around, I thought to myself, What am I going to do if we stop nursing? It makes things so much easier. She falls asleep faster, I don’t have bottles to deal with, and flu season is starting so I’ll just keep going.

I can honestly say that I never intended to keep nursing this long. I didn't imagined myself to be the woman still nursing an almost three year old. And honestly, there are days that I really want to quit.

But nursing her gives us two so much connection. I want her to be able to connect with me the way she wants to. One day she’ll be four, thirteen and thirty. And she’ll have her own life. She won’t cry and scream anymore just to get into my arms. So I want to cherish every moment because it all goes so fast.

Despite the people who keeps on telling me to stop breastfeeding because she's too old already. I am proud and happy to nourish her with the most precious milk. For now, she’s still my baby. And I will keep on nursing her until the day she self wean.

Shoutout to all my MOOmma friends! ❤ Happy latching! Don't mind the people who keeps on telling you to stop nursing just because they're toddlers already!
