Because it is the eve of my 35th birthday, and because I wanted to do something special to commemorate World Breastfeeding Week, I submitted the post for today’s “Joys” series. It is being hosted on, so please click over for a post and a video (thank you, Tom, for putting the video together at 10:45pm the night before it was scheduled to post!).

By the way – I am going to change the focus from the joys of breastfeeding a toddler to the joys of breastfeeding past infancy. I’ve already published several posts from mothers who breastfed past toddlerhood, and I look forward to sharing more in the months to come. So if you have a story to share about nursing past infancy – whether your little one nursed until s/he was 2 years old, 4 years old, or beyond, please contact me.

  1. Happy birthday!

    My older nursling will be two in September. Not sure we have anything amazing to share about it, though.

  2. Happy Birthday!
    I landed on your blog from another blog, and were delighted to read a few of your articles. I’m the blessed mother of eight children (so far), the oldest 16 and my youngest 6 months. I exclusively breastfeed my babies and they all naturally weaned themselves either during my next pregnancy or sometime after the new baby arrived. We are health freaks and don’t immunized our children.
    You have an excellent blog!
    Have a blessed weekend

      Thanks so much Linnie! Eight children – you are definitely blessed! I used to dream about having a lot of kids, that would be so much fun :)
      If you have any stories to share in the “Joys” series, I’d welcome a guest post from you!

    Sounds good Dionna. I like that you are changing the name too. I was thinking that that would end up being a good idea since Kieran is getting older too! Loved your Nursing Freedom post and Happy Birthday girl!
