Three Years Nursing! Happy Birthday Cooper!

Cooper turns three today!


Today Cooper turns three years old!  We’re still nursing, and proud of it!

So happy birthday to my little boy, happy “birth” day to me (27 hours of labor.  Whew!) and I’m very happy that we can let Cooper breastfeed until he is ready to be finished! (He’s almost done. He nurses for a paltry few minutes here and there, and not even every day anymore.  My baby is a big boy now!)

  1. Happy 3 years of nursing! I feel your pain with 27 hours of labor… my first was 27 hours and ended in a section. That was a HARD labor. Happy BIRTHday to you mama!

  2. Happy birthday, Cooper!

    By the way, have you had much trouble around friends and family? I see my sister nursing her almost-three-year-old daughter, and almost everyone is talking about her and to her as to how that is “unnormal” and she is “scarring her daughter for life” and such. (I have tried shaking them, but old people break so easily.)

    • Go ahead. It’s only by breaking them that you can put the pieces together in a better configuration! (lol)

  3. Awww…… Happy Birthday Cooper! I remember when you announced his birth – but then I remember when we were both still using MySpace – for BLOGGING! lol

    I hope he gets to do something special today, and that you all have a safe day out of the heat.

  4. Oh, while I’m here, I should tell you about the documentary we watched last night on Netflix. You may have already seen it, but if you haven’t, you should. It’s called “BUSTING LOOSE” – it’s about a woman’s investigation into social attitudes towards women’s breasts and why we have such a problem with breasts being used for nursing.
