|View Poll Results: If your child self weaned, at what age?|
|less than 2 yrs old||61||100.00%|
|8 + yrs||5||62.50%|
|Multiple Choice Poll. Voters: 8. You may not vote on this poll|
I voted 3-4 years. DD self-weaned at 3.5, but I think she would have kept going had I not been pregnant and lost my milk.
I am SHOCKED, I mean REALLY SHOCKED to see so many in the poll voting that their children weaned at under 2 years. Holy moly!! Is this MDC or have things changed in my baby-mooning absence??? :
My dd struck for 1 day when she was 23 months old. It was my understanding that prior to 2 years, refusal to nurse is not self-weaning, but a strike. I will be heartbroken if my ds (now 4 mos) strikes before 2, but I guarantee I will do everything in my power to keep him on the boob till 24 mos, *minimum*. People do know about the WHO statement on non-BF kids under 2, right? I mean, studies have proven that they are at increased risk for disease, infection, and death. Yikes!
I agree, the numbers are unusually large for this particular forum. This poll is not indicative of what I've seen in this forum so I don't know where many of the votes came from. Perhaps it led to a large percentage of voting from outside of this forum...: . That's my only guess. But please don't let it scare you away. It's just a poll. The many threads filled with heart-felt support should carry far more weight. You're in the right place.
We consider DD to have weaned at 4 years, 2 months (though she occasionally tried to nurse until she was 5 years, 4 months--- it just didn't work for her though).
DS weaned this last May, at 5 years, 8 months.
Neither were "fully" CLW, but they both made the final decision.
