So, my son is 18 months old and we've always nursed frequently. All through the night as we sleep, when he's tired, sad, bored, etc. This last week, he has turned nursing down frequently. He says he wants to nurse and then we lay down and he doesn't want to. I honestly thought we'd be nursing longer than this.
I knew I would not be able emotionally to wean him and I wanted him to feel ready and wean when he's ready. I just didn't think it would be this week.
It feels like we are reinventing our relationship.
Of course, he has still been nursing strong during the wee hours of the morning still but the daytime sessions have been lessening (down to twice today).
Thanks for letting me share. I shed quite a few tears tonight, proud of how strong he is emotionally and physically and what an amazing connection we've had since birth but wow. This is still so hard.
Any words of wisdom or been there, done that thoughts?
