When and how did your LO wean?

Making this a poll because I'm curious, but would love detailed answers as well DS is 14 months and has gone down to 5 sessions/day+night, but still has a lot of interest in nursing. A friend of mine recently weaned her 18 month old twins because she thought it would be easier to do now than later. I'd like to do child-led weaning, but honestly can't see myself nursing much past about 3. So, when did your kiddo wean, and was it child- or mommy- led?

My DS CLW at 26 months but I was also about 14-15 weeks pregnant....so my milk was having a hard time keeping up so he just slowly wanted less and less.

My DD2 weaned herself at 13 months when I was 3 weeks pregnant with DS2. The other 2 I pumped fed because we could not get a proper latch in over a month of trying so they didn't really have to wean.

DS weaned at 16 mo. I was 4 months pregnant with dd and there wasn't much for milk for the last month or so. DD is 14months and still going strong

Re: When and how did your LO wean?

ok Troy wened himself at 10 months
Naomi I had to take off at 8 months due to medical issues that I was just not able to feed her any more
Aimee wened at 13 months almost 14 and Then I put her back on after some help from wonderful ladies on her aobut 3-4 weeks latter. She did it with my help. The going back on is not working out as well as I had hoped though.

You need a category for "not weaned yet"

I voted child-led over 3.5 years. My 4yo is still nursing, and we intend on CLW. My 18mo is also still nursing, and I expect she will be for a few more years yet!

Yeah, not weaned yet

I'm planning on child led with leaning though. I do have a limit, but I'm not going to make DS go cold turkey one day. So that's not really child led, but sort of.

Re: When and how did your LO wean?

My son weaned at 16 months on his own. I did sort of "encourage" him to night wean which ending up being the beginning of his weaning. But I'm happy w/ how it all turned out. He's a healthy little guy and I'm very proud of myself for nursing him as long as he wanted/needed.
