I'm sure there have to be some here. Any advice, stories of how it went, etc?
I had planned on CLW but now I'm wondering if he might need some encouraging to wean (not planning to wean anytime soon, mind you...just thinking ahead a little and wondering).... Right now, given the choice, DS would still be exclusively bf, with maybe a bite or two off of our plates when we eat (if he stops running, or coloring or whatever he's doing, long enough to realize that we're eating). ....I WOH full-time so he does eat, when I'm not around....but most days if I'm home with him he eats a tiny bit if at all and nurses a ton.... still nurses a ton during the night too.... I have no problem with him nursing as much as he wants to now, but I really can't see myself nursing a 7, 8 year old child (and kudos to those that do; just not for me, I think). Do autistic kids still transition off the breast easily, on their own (maybe on their own timetable) or do they tend to need some extra help? .... Mostly I think the "don't offer, don't refuse" thing is the best idea; but with ds, that still means we're nursing about 300 times a day. (J/K, lol, but way too many to keep track of)
