Re: When did your baby self wean?

My third child sorta self-weaned at almost 4 1/2. Her last nursing session she nursed for 10 mins and when I told her I needed her to stop, she said she didn't get any milk. I know there was plenty there (I'm nursing her younger brother still and he was only 8 months old at the time) but she "couldn't" get it out. I think she just had grown to the point that the reflex was gone. She wasn't good at nursing any more, iykwim. Anyway, I say she "sorta" self-weaned because I called that the end even though she wished she could keep going some. Mentally, she still wanted to, but physically she just couldn't.

Hope that makes sense. lol
