I had planned to start at a year too, but Andrew is a boobie baby and wanted nothing to do with that. I did manage to get him on whole milk at daycare so I'm not pumping now. He still nurses at night, during the night and in the mornings and I don't see us getting rid of those until he's ready.
cait: your groovy milky mama blinkie rocks! can I save it and use it??
Grace weaned during my preg with Lily, and though she asked after she had gone 48 hours without nursing, I decided we were done. No asking again, no drama at all.
LIly weaned during my preg with Flis. She too asked after a few days of not nursing, and I told her we were done and saving the milk for the new baby. She was cool with it and didnt ask either.
I have nursed each of them until they were 2 1/2, Grace was 31 months, Lily was 33 months. I noticed that once I got pregnant, I had some issues with being emotionally distant and not as affectionate with them until they weaned. I am really torn about what to do with Felicity. I am considering weaning when I get pregnant next time, because I think my relationship with her will be better.
I never thought I would say anything other than child led... but having noticed some real emotional problems within my last two pregnancies, I am really going to soul search this time.
I do hope to nurse Felicity till she's 2 And there's always the possibility that she will self wean before 2, but my other two daughters didnt....
I say child led weaning until 3 then I start to wean them. Xandria nursed until she was 3 years and 5 months, Thayer nursed until he was 3 years and 4 months. Alorah is nursing still although not that much hopefully she will wean by herself she will be 3 on November 23. Nathalia is still going strong.
