I went to their website, 16minuteclub.com to find out more deets on what seemed to be a fabulous program! This sounds awesome! Is it too good to be true?
I entered in Landon's birthday, and there's only one box left that we could receive. The last box. In other words, we are getting TOO OLD to receive any sort of breast feeding pampering. We are headed straight for that awkward, post-first-year breast feeding stage. Not because it's awkward for us, but because it's awkward in our society to breast feed past a year. The fact that this awesome program drops off at just one year clearly suggests that it's true. In just over a month, it won't matter whether I cover up, where I feed him or how. It'll just be awkward because he's past one year.
I know a lot of people wean at a year. A lot keep going, but you don't really hear as much about it. I don't see any sign of us stopping any time soon. Landon loves his "milkies." He nurses when he's hungry, when he's thirsty, when he needs comforting and he nurses to sleep. I'm a little bit proud for making it to my ONE year goal! What an incredible journey it's been!!
It does make me a little sad that The 16 Club just stops at a year. I don't think it's very supportive of those of us who choose to keep going. Whatever. I'll throw myself a little pamper party for saving thousands of dollars on formula! BOOYA! ;)
What are your thoughts surrounding breast feeding past a year? What's appropriate? What's not?
