Most of you probably know that Matthew was breastfed as a baby, and that we continued well into toddlerhood and beyond.  To be honest if you spent any time with us it was probably hard to avoid knowing :)  There were times when it looked like he'd never stop, and it's always been both easier and nicer to continue.

Well, it looks like we're starting to head towards the end. Matthew was 4 in March, and (apart from occasional injury or meltdown) we've only been feeding morning and night since Christmas. A month or so back we stopped doing milk downstairs at bedtime too, so he's only had night-time milk when it's my turn for bedtime.

Last night at teatime I asked if he was ready to stop having mummy milk - and said we'd buy him a lovely present to celebrate being such a big grown up boy (he has his eye on some more Nexo Knights Lego). He agreed - and had just cuddles with his stories at bedtime.

I was not at all surprised to find he did want some milk with his iPad this morning. I asked if he really did want milk, and reminded him about the present, but he decided he did want milk for now, and we can try again tomorrow or next week. We'll see!

Daddy's been ready for him to stop having milk completely for a while now, and I think I'm pretty much ready too. It looks like it won't be long before Matthew is!

It's nice when you all get to ready at the same time. I drifted into and out of readiness with one of mine, as they kept weaning to tiny feeds rather than further apart. I do miss it being an easy answer though.

Amazing to get to 4 years. I fed L&J up to 16 months (which seemed ages at the time!) and S is still going very strong at 26 months. I think we're in for the long haul this time, too - which I'm mostly happy about with occasional frustration (usually at 3am!).
