Over the past week or so, my 2.5 year old has stopped sucking when he nurses. I am 24 weeks pregnant, and when I first got pregnant he was nursing about 4 times a day. For the past several months it has been 1-2 times a day, at nap and bedtime. I think it has been a while since I actually had milk, but he would always suck still. Now, he puts his lips around my nipple and holds. Sometimes he falls asleep in that position. He hasn't sucked in a week. Is this him weaning?
Is this weaning?
Why I think he is weaned is that he isn't sucking and he isn't getting milk. Being weaned is the point when the child no longer gets mother's milk. Some women's supply goes down in pregnancy but their child will continure to suck. We don't know if they are getting milk. Some children will wean in pregnancy and then start nursing again after the baby is worn.
