I did, yes. Don't offer, don't refuse is generally considered a "weaning" technique and many babies/children will wean when the breast is no longer offered to them. My ds didn't, of course. Don't offer, don't refuse just got us down to about 20x/day! LOL!
So, if you definitely want to nurse your ds at least until age 2, I would wait until then to stop offering the breast. Unless, of course, your ds is like mine and asks a lot anyway. In that case it may not matter too much.
