I have a 18 mo who is almost weaned. We've had a really great nursing relationship! For us, DD nursed 8-10x from birth until probably close to 10 mo even though she was eating several good solid meals. During this time, it was special because she really needed boob and I could provide her nutrition ad comfort. Lukcily we didn't have any probems nursing other than a couple of plugged ducts.
Then she dropped to 4-6x until about 12-14 mo. I think the spacing gradually widened, rather than me purposefully eliminating a certain feeding. From then, I have been trying to wean her on a very gradual process. I only nurse her when she asked (by sign/words), and sometimes distract her with other food/activity. Sometimes I do feel a little nostalgic about when DD used to nurse a lot, but also feel very proud what a big girl she is!
Now DD nurses 1-2x per day. The one feeding we still have is the bedtime feeding. Sometimes she asks for boob for nap or as a treat. I always nurse her when asks for it. Otherwise we are done. I think it worked out well because it has been very gradual. Plus the 1-2x she nurses, she is super ecstatic jumping up & down happy, so that's great. Nursing is definitely a special psychological treat, more than nutrition or comfort at this point.
A couple of weeks ago, DD woke up at night (usually STTN) and I went to nurse her. And she said, "no, no, water!" I was like, what do you mean you don't want wonder boob? But then I realized she is old enough to tell me what she needs! I was so proud!!!
I think you can always look at thing glass half full or half empty. You can get upset your baby is not nursing, or you can celebrate your baby is growing up and becoming a toddler. I think no matter how many times your child nurses, it still is a very special bond. Also, I feel you have to let go & let your child decide.
