Maybe I'm the only out here in this situation, but I'm hoping not, so I have other people to whine to.
My ds is 15 months. I am really ready to be done with nursing. He is not. I suspect he may be getting his molars or some other teeth, because he is cranky and nursing a ton lately, if I let him (and I usually do). I COULD wean him. But I've chosen thus far not to give him replacement milk, and I don't HAVE to wean him. I SAH, I miscarried in September (I don't want to tandem, so I was counting on pregnancy to be a good incentive for weaning), my skin doesn't crawl at his nursing. I'm just sort of ready to wear non-boob-accessible clothes and to not always be the one soothing him back to sleep when he wakes up at night. I'm hoping to drop another 5 lbs after he weans. I'd like to be able to be away from him overnight and not have to pump for my own comfort. I'm WAY done with being kicked/poked/etc. when he gets bored or antsy while nursing. (And yes, he does often get set down for these behaviors.)
Obviously, none of these things have caused me to take the initiative in weaning my son, but I sometimes feel like a misfit among other toddler-breastfeeders. They all seem so absolutely delighted that their little one is still nursing, and hope to nurse them till they're 27. (And I wish them the joy of their nursing experience - to each their own.) The ones who've weaned already just look at me like, well, why don't you wean him? So are there any nuts like me out there who are ready to be done but willing to wait a little longer for self-weaning?
