2 yrs and almost 5 months and we are still breastfeeding. I've been really on and off about weaning. Some difficult days, I'd stick a middle finger about "child-led-weaning" and some days where unicorns fly around us, I'd wish the moment that she'd ask to be nursed won't end. I am seeing the near-end of our breastfeeding moment, though. My supply is very low already. Little Spanish Pinay herself would even tell me ya no hay leche, mami (no more milk, mami) like as if she's complaining and demanding for more. So I guess, sooner or later, she'd get tired of sucking and would move on to her life without Las Boobies.
How do I feel about that?
I am already nostalgic about it.
I am looking forward to it at the same time.
I feel triumphant as we really had a tough start on breastfeeding and that I have told myself 2yrs is the minimum time I'd breastfeed LSP.
If this is a novel, we are indeed nearing the denouement.
Speaking of a novel, I'd like to share another success story of a friend on breastfeeding. Because novel = story. I know, I'm good on segues.
It is a really touching and beautiful story of courage, dedication and pure mommy love! I do feel compelled to share this because I know that it may help other moms or mom-to-bes who want to really succeed on breastfeeding. Please click the whole quote below to read the whole story.

p.s. Last month is Breastfeeding Awareness Month. But I am extending it to this month and to all the months of the year. Because breastfeeding is that awesome!
