Re: When did your baby self wean?

DS weaned at 32 months without any encouragement from me, but would have gone longer had the circumstances been different. We moved and I got pregnant right at the same time; the upheaval of moving put him on a nursing strike for a few weeks and my milk dried up extremely quickly due to pregnancy. By the time DS was asking to nurse again there was nothing left. He said he'd just nurse again when the baby came and the milk came back, but we ended up losing the pregnancy half way through. No baby, no milk.

I got pregnant again 5 months after losing the baby, but by that point DS had no interest in nursing when I asked if he'd want to, so I figure he'd have been done by 3.5 even if he'd kept nursing past 32 months.

DD is still going strong, nursing 5, 6, 7 or more times a day. I'm excited to get to tandem nurse her and the newest little one soon.
