    Hugs to you. I’ve started doing the same for my 19 month old, as I am 20 weeks pregnant and no longer have supply. She needs it for the comfort…but it’s become too uncomfortable for me. We’re down to nap and night night.

      Hugs right back at you. I found, with Baz, that cradling him as though he were nursing while he was drinking from his sippy cup filled his need for comfort. We spent much of my second pregnancy in that position. Good luck and congratulations on your new baby!

    Thank you for this, Emily. I’ve long thought that the idea of solely child-led weaning leads some moms to resent breastfeeding. A nursing pair involves two people and the needs of both are important to honor. I appreciate your sensitive approach to transition the forms in which you share your love with Walter.

    This was almost exactly what we did, I didn’t know it had a name. I fed for 13 months. Although it felt hard to stop, it was also a tiring 13 months.
