CLW'nd 1.5 months before his 5th BIRTHday

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I am happy and somewhat sad to report that my DS decided 1½ months before his 5th Birthday that he is done with "milkies." I was only planning on BF him until 2 yo...... Once we got to 2yo I didn't see any point in stopping it, so we just went with it. His sister was born when he was 23½ months, so we have been tandem nursing since then. I have always lurked here but never introduced myself because I felt like it would commit me to CLW.......yeah....weird I know, but true. I always thought I would cut him off long before now.....but it was always as if I was going to do it for other people's sake....KWIM? I was always encouraged to continue after reading all of the posts in this forum.....thank you!

Thanks ladies! I deeply feel like it was all just right the way it happened. I'm hoping for the same with my DD who will be 3 yo Dec. 21st...not necessarily BF until 5 yo (which would be totally fine too), but weaning herself peacfully.

jamsmama, you give me hope that DS1 will CLW. He's current 4y7m, and I am tandeming with DS2 (1y). I see no end in sight, because he REALLY loves nursing and he sees his little brother NOD. Thanks for your story.
