When to wean
the thought of weaning my baby makes me sad. He's 9 months old and I don't plan on weaning him anytime soon but he is my first and so the thought of I'm weaning and "not needing" me anymore makes me sad. He already is extremely distracted while nursing and is always interested in other things so I worry he will wean himself once I allow him which wouldn't be until at least a year. But my question is, I know it's a very controversial subject, but being a first time mom I would like to know different peoples opinions on what the right age to wean is. I don't believe there is any right or wrong answer I just like to hear different opinions.
