Re: When did your baby self wean?

I suggestively weaned my oldest at a year... long story.

My second was really into nursing and all of the sudden at 15ish months would not nurse more than a few seconds here and there... I think this dropped my supply and she subsequently weaned.

My third I'm still nursing, she's 19 mos, I'm 28 weeks pregnant and she shows absolutely NO signs of weaning. My dh asked what I was gonna do when the baby came... he was shocked to know that ppl actually nurse TWO babies at once lol. I'm curious what will happen when the baby comes. I'm guessing she'll increase her "need" to nurse.

Re: When did your baby self wean?

My older two I weaned but my DD2 self weaned herself at almost 2 years. She would only suck a minute and then be done. This was occuring every BF session, not just occasionally. She loved to down her homo milk though. It was then I knew she was done.....sigh.....

Re: When did your baby self wean?

My son was 16 months and I wasn't ready Once he stopped nursing at night (14mo.) he slowed down more and more until he didn't want to at all

I was hoping for a little more time. He's so big now!

DD2 weaned herself at 13 months. I was pregnant, although I didn't actually know it, her weaning was my first clue. She just wasn't interested anymore.

DS was 2 years, 8 months old when he weaned. He asked to nurse one more time just after he turned 3 and I let him try. He remembered how to latch correctly, but after a couple of sucks he stopped, looked up at me and said, "No more Mama Milk, Mama." I guess my milk had dried up.

Re: When did your baby self wean?

39 months, but it wasn't a true self-weaning. She was starting nursery school and I was definitely suggesting she stop. I was nervous she was going to talk about it to her new friends or teachers, though this time around, I don't think I'll be so skittish.

Neither of mine self weaned. We did mama led weaning, gently. Oldest dd was weaned by 30 mos and youngest was recently weaned at 35 mos. Youngest was a bit chagrined at the idea but then I told her she got a weaning present. She asked for a bear so we went to Buildabear. It really did help. Plus, we do snuggles and cuddles still which are almost as good as nursing.
