I should be pleased that we made it this far (DD is 21 months), but I just feel sad that DD seems so uninterested in 'mummy milk'. I was aiming for 2 years!
I noticed this morning that it seems to have gone back to colostrum for the new baby, and thought uthat might be why, but she's been getting less interested for a few weeks now.

I was getting all ready to be tandem feeding when the new baby came too  happy.gif

Hopefully she doesn't stop completely, I'll miss our special cuddles ( and I still feed her to sleep for her day nap  ph34r.gif )

Oh no, such a shame sad.gif I hope she keeps going though. Keep offering as much as you can, she might keep coming back (it's what I'm doing currently, to encourage DD2 to keep going).

You have done SO well to make it to 21mo though, excellent work!

I'll keep my fingers crossed for you original.gif

Thanks PippityPip original.gif

I will keep offering, as sometimes she still gets a huge grin & clambers over my bump - but that's getting rarer & rarer.
I think DH was a bit pleased when I mentioned that she's not so interested, which made me a bit sad too. Although, I think he's most concerned about her doing 'baby poos' again if she's drinking colostrum...

Fingers crossed she keeps it up!
