Re: After 1yr when did you stop?

LOL
I've never been 100% of a poll before !!!!

we haven't actually weaned yet, but since dd is over 2, i just picked over 2...LOL...

I'd say that if you are really looking to get a better picture, you should add in a couple categories, like 2-3, 3-4, 5+

Otherwise, the "over 2" category is going to encompass a LOT of different answers...

Re: After 1yr when did you stop?

we're still nursing - dd just turned 2. i'm pg now, and i'm slowly starting to cut down on her night nursing. my supply is down quite a lot, so she may decide to wean herself before i have the next baby. maybe not.

she's reduced her nursing somewhat, but not dramatically. also prior to me getting pregnant, i hadn't noticed any decline in her interest in nursing so i'm sure she would have continued on for quite awhile.

i know some people really find that their kiddos start dropping their intake alot with increasing solids. molly's only now starting to be a big solid eater, so i'm sure that's part of why she's nursed so persistently.

i think a lot of it at this age is temperment too. some kids are just way more attached to nursing than others.

not exactly the question you were asking, but hope that helps some.

Re: After 1yr when did you stop?

My plan was to wean ODD at 18 months but we got our referral for our second daughter and I decided to keep ODD nursing to keep my milk going to see if our second DD would nurse when she got home. Second DD wanted nothing to do with nursing but it made the transition for ODD of going from an only child to haveing a one year old sibling a lot easier.
I'll probably wean my YDD (I have 3 DD's) around 18 months.

We started to wean right around dd's first birthday. She could not have cared less. She was like "bye mom I have things to do".

Re: After 1yr when did you stop?

im letting dd self wean so whenever she is done then i'll stop. i just cant imagine forcing her to stop...aspecially not right now ...right now she still nurses like a newborn!! so it would definately have a huge negative impact on her to stop...but thats just my DD
