Breastfeeding Goals in the New Year

I am writing this post as part of the Breastfeeding Blog Hop. This week's topic is: Breastfeeding Goals in the New Year. Feel free to share your goals below or link up in the hop.

My breastfeeding goals for the new year are.... well.... I don't really have any. When I first started nursing Jordan I knew I wanted to nurse him for a year and beyond. For some reason, 15 months sounded good to be and I set that out as my breastfeeding goal. On December 30, 2011 that goal was met. Now, it's just sort of up in the air.

I have started the process of weaning him. What I mean by that is that I have introduced him to cow's milk. However, I still plan to nurse him as well until he shows a readiness to be done. With Jake, it was easy - I had to quit due to the damage he was doing to me -- which my doctor said was on the verge of being permanent! I weaned him cold-turkey! And he was so used to taking milk from a bottle anyway that he didn't seem to mind -- or even notice -- the difference.

Jordan, however, is  a totally different baby. So until it becomes more than I can take, I will continue to nurse him until he is ready to be done.
