Re: Is he weaning himself?

Usually babies don't wean before age 2 without the presence of a)too much solids, b)paci's c)extra liquid in cup, or bottle or d)bottles!
If you want to keep nursing and he has any of those things, I would take them away, or cut back the solids, and see how he does. If you ask any moms who have nursed past 2 I think alot of them agree that there are points at which the nursing dips alot and can be interpreted as weaning, but that we have to remember that the way we are designed as humans, if we didn't nurse until 2 at least we wouldn't survive. HTH!

Re: Is he weaning himself?

Thanks for all of your responses, mamas!

I think we're getting onto a new nursing schedule. He'll nurse when he first wakes up, once or twice during the day when he's going down for his nap(s) and then right before bed.

It's definitely not what it was, but it's certainly better than nothing. I have also found that we have to be in a quiet place and he prefers to nurse laying down.

Hopefully we'll make it to 2 years!
