    OK- so I believe that nursing/weaning is a relationship that only the mother and child really understand. HOWEVER, if anyone could please share their stories of weaning MUCH older children, please please share. My 6yr old is still highly interested in nursing once a day, in the evening, together...

    Hey guys Today I took my four month old son to his well baby visit. Everything looked great, thank god. We had a brief little chat about whether I'd started solids yet, I said I intended to persue baby led weaning and thus far he's had no more than a tiny lick of peach and banana he stole out...

    My 15 month old has abruptly stopped nursing and this has lasted for about 3 days now. Before that he would nurse first thing in the morning, before naps, a couple of times in the afternoon, and before bedtime. I've tried everything, researched Kellymom's website, etc and I'm still in the same...

    My daughter is about to turn one in a few days. My intent was to keep nursing her at least once a day until she decided she had enough. But the problem is that she has decided, and now i am heartbroken. We have had a rough few weeks. I broke one of my elbows and was unable to nurse her when...

    Out of interest really! I know it can vary. I am interested in when yours stopped feeding in the night? Mine hasn't stopped yet but he has only just turned 2 so I don't expect him to wean anytime soon. However, when he does - will it be gradual or sudden? Does that vary too or is it always...

    I have a question that I would really love some help with -- research, experience, personal preference... anything... just trying to sort out what I should do. I am practicing baby led weaning with my daughter, who is just over 2 years old. She's a very happy, apparently healthy child. She has...

    Hi ladies, I've thought about writing about my experience here but had been feeling that I was the only one who would know what felt right. But maybe some of you have been through this and can share your experiences. My DS, now 14 months, exclusively breastfed up to almost a year (well solids...

    My DS is 23 months old and we are still breastfeeding and co-sleeping. I've always thought that I would practice CLW but having some doubts as well. Starting about a month or more ago I started feeling like I'm ready to be done with nursing, yet at the same time I will miss it too and part of me...

    Hi, My daughter is 35 months old and until 1 month back (I am 17 weeks pregnant) she was nursing once in the night to sleep. I have suspected that I had no milk since 3-4 months before pregnancy so about months of 4-5 months of dry-suckling and last month no nursing (it was painful and I have...

    I don't want to encourage early weaning but this morning I was thinking about 'hunger'. I was cleaning up the kitchen and DS2 (who is 23 months) was asking to nurse. I knew he was hungry - he had not had any breakfast yet. I wouldn't have denied him from nursing but it did have me wondering...

    'Cause that's what our 2yr old is doing. She started doing it only at night, but now it occasionally happens during the day too. She'll latch on & then just sit there. I'll give her a few seconds and then tell her that if she's not gonna nurse, she needs to let go (it really does a mental number...

    My DH recently told me he wants me to stop nursing our almost 3 yo. I have a new little one- 3 mo. He feels it is confusing to our DD who is being asked to be more independent in so many ways, that nursing tells her she is still a baby. He wants to keep her moving in "one direction." I can't...
  14. Child-Led Weaning
    Just curious to get some perspectives and thoughts on this... I want DS to nurse until he's ready to be done with mamma's milk. To me, this is CLW. However, we are currently night-weaning (mainly because DS, 20 months, and I both were not sleeping very well from about 4am on, when he'd come...

    Hello ladies. ill start off with both my children were/are formula fed only. and my son was on solids around 4 months. He was so excited and interested to eat it was so easy to get him going. My daughter is almost 6 months old and she has ZERO interest in food at all. which is fine if shes not...

    From about six months on, we have been introducing solid foods to DS using the baby-led weaning approach. He is 9 months now. Recently, he seems very gassy and uncomfortable, especially at night. He's also developed some hives on his skin, and a runny nose with no other cold symptoms. I noticed...

    I have a beautiful 28 month old daughter who is an avid nurser. She's my last....I have nursed all three of my kids, from only 21 months with my first, to 3 1/2 years with my second, and now am going strong with Linnea. We co-sleep, as well. However....I am exhausted with the night nursing...

    Hi Mamas, DS is 9 months old. We started baby-led weaning at around 7 months or so. He is now eating more and more solid foods, and loving it. He is, of course, nursing less, and taking less breastmilk at daycare. I work, and I am still able to pump more than he needs. However, the past two...
  19. Breastfeeding Beyond Infancy
    My son is almost 3 and I feel like I would like to start the weaning process. It is not because he is almost 3. Ocean is my 4th child and I have almost always breastfed until toddler-hood. I even breastfed thru a pregnancy and tandem nursed for almost a year. I am just not enjoying it as much...

    I am nursing 15 mth old twins. They still actively nurse at least 5 times a day. My boy wakes in teh night to nurse still, but usually for just a few minutes. Im afraid they are getting close to weaning. They dont constantly want to nurse, only when they are sleepy or when they first get up in...
