Tishie, before this happened, had your daughter always been accustomed to getting the breast whenever she wanted it? If you weren't denying her when she wanted to nurse, then I certainly don't think it was you who weaned her.
And she just totally quit waking and wanting nourishment at night? Wow! That's outside my frame of reference, but I don't want to discount your experience just because it's so different from mine.
I do remember reading in Mothering Your Nursing Toddler that there is a danger point around this age, because some babies are so excited by their increasing mobility that they just kind of "forget" about the breast. So it sounds like maybe that's what happened with your daughter?
