Why I Document EVERYTHING | Day 1/100

This post showed up in my memories today that reminded me that on this day last year, I had started the 100 Day Countdown to Laddoo’s second birthday.

My weaning story – Part 1

Let me start by saying that even though I breastfed for 2 years, 1 month, 3 weeks, 5 days, plus one more feed, I am not proud of the fact that I chose to wean so early.
