If she is trying to wean herself? DD is only 13.5 mos, and I am in no way encouraging her to wean. Nursing her is the easiest, most relaxing part of mothering this intense, energetic little girl. However, she seems to have dropped off quite a bit lately. For example, if she was tired,cranky, etc. she would be comforted by the breast; I have also tried it as a redirective if she was working up to a tantrum over something I wouldn't give her. Let me just say she is NOT easily redirected: . But the past few days, she pushes me away. She is probably down to about 5 nursings a day, give or take, depending on the teething/illness situation. I am not concerned about her nutrition, as she eats well most days, though a little about hydration, as it has recently become a struggle to get her to drink extra at home. She does pretty well with drinking at MDO and nursery at church. Does this mean anything? I would be most happy if she weaned by 2 years, so I could get pg again and not struggle with nursing her (please don't flame me for not wanting to tandem nurse, btw). But I'm not ready for it yet, though dh would be thrilled. I wanted to ask about this at LLL today, but the leader was focussed on the mothers of young babies and I didn't get a word in: . Oh well, that's what this board is for. Thanks!
