Hi mamas! I haven't posted in here for awhile, but I was hoping you all could offer some feedback. My son is 16 months old and I want to let him self wean. I had thought this would mean nursing for quite some time past a year, but recently it is almost as if he is starting to wean himself. He was nursing at bedtime, when he woke up in the morning, and sometimes during the day (if he asked for milk). He hasn't asked for milk during the day for quite some time now, and he has stopped wanting to nurse at bedtime or in the morning. I offer him the breast, he'll latch on for a second (literally) and then pop off and not want anymore. Could he be weaning? Have you heard of babies weaning themselves so early (before 2)? I'll continue to let him lead the way, but any insight would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you Jaidynsmum for my super cute siggy!
