Or is that too early? I haven't nursed her in 3 days now and the only reason she nursed 3 days ago was because I asked her if she wanted to. And she latched on and nursed for about 20seconds before running away saying, "see sisters. go play." She's been nursing once or twice every few days for about maybe 2 months now but she's really starting to stretch out that time even more. She's not going to be 2 until the first week in January. My impression of child led weaning was that it happened USUALLY at a much later age. She really seems uninterested in nursing. And to be honest, that's okay with me. I'm feeling maybe like our nice time nursing is over. But I wanted to get her through cold and flu season with some nice antibodies from nursing because she's got reactive airway and I feel like she'll be sicker without nursing. Is this too early to wean? She's my last child and I won't nurse ever again and I'm conflicted on what I feel is following her signals versus asking her to nurse more often just for the sake of getting her to age 2 and then beyond into "safer" more germ-free weather.
