My DS is about 3.75 years. Over the last few months, he's been nursing more and more sporadically, often going days w/o a nibble. For a couple of weeks now, he's not nursed at all! The last 2 days, he asked to nurse but only nursed for a couple of seconds tops. I think he wanted to see if he still could ask and receive. KWIM? Anyway, I'm not remotely sad...though it does feel a little strange. I expected to nurse through another pregnancy (though I haven't been blessed w/ another baby yet...still hoping). I imagined DS might nurse as long as DD. I was geared up to wait it out if necessary and be more patient than I was w/ DD. So, even though I'm happy he's weaned on his own and so early (seems early to me, LOL), I feel like I have all this patience and fortitude readied and nothing to spend it on. LOL. I must say, I like that I can wear a one piece dress now, if I want. I do feel blessed to have learned about CLW, though. It hasn't always been easy, but it's always been good for all of us.
