Who Knew Spanky could read?

Ever since I wrote my post about weaning Spanky, he has been nursing a lot. All those that just had their babies say a few hours ago, I am pretty sure Spanky is nursing about as much as your new baby.

Every time I sit down, he jumps on lap to nurse. If Mike tries to bring him to bed, he peers over his daddy's shoulder and screams holding out his hand to me. If I am busy homeschooling the girls, he comes over to me and tries nurse. And right now, what is Spanky doing? Nursing.

This is going to be a very long journey.

(To the person who asked what a plugged duct was, it is when milk is stuck in your breast. It is extremely painful and can lead to mastitis which is the flu times ten!)

And I am once again grateful that I weaned Alexis at the right time. I'm pretty sure that if I had waited so much as a few weeks longer, she would have been a boob girl until she was in high school.

Good luck!

My husbands mother said he nursed till he was almost 3! And the only reason she stopped was because she had his brother.
Good Luck!
By the way-I love the picture!!

He won't nurse forever ~ but while you are trying to wean him i suppose it just feels that way!

Good Luck with it!

Spanky is a pretty smart fellow, huh?!

Sorry that it's not working out as you had hoped, quite yet.
