I was planning on weaning my son in the spring of this year, once flu season is over.
However, now that I"m back at work and seeing his little face when I come home, extended breastfeeding is becoming more attractive to me. As soon as I walk in the door, DS crawls to me whining and anxious to reconnect with me via breastfeeding. He breastfeeds for about 20 minutes and looks up at me with such a happy face.
I don't think I'll be ready to stop at 15 months, but I'm also afraid of what people may think if they see me breastfeed an 18 month old. I know that the longer I breastfeed him, the harder it will be to wean him.
I really love the bond and my son really loves it too. He doesn't need to breastfeed at night or to go to sleep, so it's really not a problem for us.
I may desire to continue breastfeeding him until maybe age two, but I'm afraid of what others may think. I guess maybe I'll have to only breastfeed him at home, so others don't see me breastfeeding a toddler?
