Thanks everyone for all your answers. I was wondering if it was possible Rivka had a true child led weaning, and I think she did.
She *never* liked to suck, even as a tiny infant. She would nurse for milk, and then push off. If I tried to relatch her she screamed (no pacis / bottles / anything). She was never a baby who was at the breast for hours at a time, multiple tiems a day. Give me my milk and let me get on with my life
She never attmepted to suck her thumb or fingers, she just wasn't a sucky baby at all. She would delatch before going back to sleep, she never nursed to sleep after about 4 weeks old (although she needed to nurse *before* she woudl go back to sleep, she would always delatch herself and go to sleep on her own)
I always offered teh breast first, she didn't really have many solids at all until 15m +
I never nightweaned, and she decreased nursing very gradually (she nursed at night until the end). She always used to nurse first thing AM, and she just sort of wanted to drop that (I woudl offer and she woudl run off). Despite my offering, she totally stopped nursing abotu 22 months. It was really gradual, she cut down, she woudl skip a day, come back, I woudl offer, she would refuse, etc. I wasn't pregnant, no return of AF, I didn't nightwean, nothing really changed. Not that it makes a difference now, but I was just wondering if it was "CLW" and I think it was
My twins had pregnancy led wearning, but hey you can't always control life.
