Last fall, I noticed Aram hadn’t nursed in what seemed like months. (I hadn’t really noticed up until that point)…
I wondered if he had also noticed, so I brought it up.
Me: Hey Aram, you haven’t nursed mommy in long time.
Aram: Yeah, I’m done.
Me: What made you decide to stop?
Aram: Because I’m done.
Me: Well, that is a great reason.
Aram: I know.
And that was that.
Although the weaning process was not very profound for either of us, our breastfeeding experience was positive while it lasted, and was not at all traumatic (or eventful) when it ended (or completed).
*We have received emails since this posted asking how old Aram was at the time he weaned. It is important that we note weaning ages vary greatly (years). For Aram, he was 4 years 2 months old when he weaned.
