It’s not a secret that I had a hard time letting go of the nursing bond. It was a fantastic connection that I feel privileged to have shared with my son. When it was over I was really sad. Well, the same can be said for Kourtney Kardashian. Apparently, celebrities are just like us. She recently opened up about how sad she is to be weaning her son. On her personal blog she shared:
I seriously could cry just thinking about it being over. I love what a beautiful experience I had with my son and just wanted to share it.
She also says she felt pressure to stop breastfeeding from family and friends. Eventually she decided that as long as he wanted to nurse she would let him. I have to say I encountered some of the same things. There were people in my life who weren’t completely supportive of me nursing. I guess it’s because they hadn’t done it. I kept being reminded that he would be getting teeth soon and that at 4 months I had done enough. I kept going until the body gave out at nearly 11 months. Kourtney’s son eventually self-weaned at 15 months. Did you experience any of the pressure to stop or were you just happy that it was ovah?
