I hope it's just a stage...and he's not weaning...

Ok so yesterday morning my 15month old didn't want to nurse or at nap like he normally does. However, he nursed at bedtime like normal...However again this am he didn't want to nurse afyer several atrempts I finally just gave up. I just hope that he isn't weaning...it makes me so sad. I know that I made it past a year and I am pregnant...but I am not ready for him to be done...despite having anoyher baby to nurse here shortly. Has anyone else had this same experience? Again sorry for the complaining/rant...I didn't know where else to go.

I've had this very experience numerous times with my now 18 month old DD. I would get so sad because she kept refusing to nurse, but within a day or two, she would be right back to normal. I believe she just gets so preoccupied with her surroundings that she doesn't want to stop long enough to nurse.

It's common for them to go through a distractable phase around this age. If you keep offering, he may come back to it. Your pregnancy might be complicating the situation though. Many LOs wean during pregnancy b/c there is less milk and it tastes different.
