DD1 is 3 today <bursts into tears> OK, I'm a bit emotional. I really never thought I'd be breastfeeding a 3 year old, 6 months was my goal but after joining Mumsnet and learning all about breastfeeding I'm still going strong and BF DD2 (7 months) as well.

So I want to say a big thank you to some people, I really hope I don't forget anyone. Here goes.... thanks to Tiktok, Truthsweet, mawbroon, WoTmania, AngelDog, crikeybadger. RitaMorgan, organiccarrotcake, JiltedJohnsJulie, MigGril, thisisyesterday and everyone else who helps mums who are struggling with BF (I'm sure I've forgotten loads of people, sorry!), you are an inspiration and I salute you all <high fives> grin

Right, we're off to take DD1 out for a treat now, after she's unwrapped her bike!

Aw, nice to be thanked, but I'm not so sure I did terribly much!

You're the one who made it happen EauRouge, and I bet your dd is delighted that you did! smile

:-) Thanks EauRouge, Like Mawbroon says - you made it happen. You read up on stuff and took the information on board. Happy Birthday to DD1

Ah, but mawbroon, you prove that normal, real people (assuming you are one wink ) let their children self-wean. It's all very well reading about it in books but talking to people that are BF older children gives me more confidence about doing it because I can't see DD1 weaning for a loooong time yet. So thanks grin

Well done to you. :-)

Can't say anything else you've made me cry (in a happy way)

Congrats on getting this far EauRouge.

Happy birthday to DD1 and wishing you a happy time bfing DD2 alongside her sister.

Thansk for the mention, but don't forget you give lots of help to others too. smile

AngelDog Mon 10-Oct-11 11:28:56

I think you've given me more help than I have you, so thank you. smile

Happy birthday to DD1 and a big pat on the back for you.

Ha, ha, yes I am definitely a real person. smile

A hairy handed trucker, but still a real person wink

This thread has made me smile because if I was listing the people who made a big difference to my BFing journey it would include all of the above plus you too EauRouge grin Just shows how much Mumsnet is about Mums helping each other and passing their advice and encouragement on

mawbroon, I'm sure my DS would like to meet you - he loves trucks and has recently (to his great delight) learnt to say the word 'hairy'. grin

JiltedJohnsJulie Tue 11-Oct-11 21:46:34

Congratulations Eau. Think I'm going to cry.
