Next month, my DH and I are planning to rip out carpet and put down new flooring in our living room and hallway (with the help of a few friends.) My youngest (will be 8mo) is going to be with me no matter what, but my parents are itching to keep dd1 for the weekend. She nurses 3-5x in a 24-hour period, including at night.<br><br>
I'm not worried about her emotionally -- I know she'd have a blast, and I'm only 2.5 hours away if I need to get to her. I'm wondering if it's likely she'd wean. I'm guessing not, but I'm curious about other moms who have BTDT.

She might wean but I'd guess not. I had to leave dd for 12 days when she was 2. I thought there was about a 50/50 chance that she'd wean. She didn't. When I returned she picked right up where she'd left off.<br><br>
I left ds for two nights when he was about 2.5. I was pretty sure he wouldn't wean in such a short time and sure enough he didn't.

I don't think she would wean. Does she seem like she could go either way? I have only been nursing once a day and Marah Jade asked to nurse when I got home Monday from my 4 day trip.

I wouldn't be terribly worried if she hadn't cut back on nursing a bit over the last month already.<br><br>
Of course, I asked again today if she wanted to go stay with them alone, and she changed her answer to No. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shrug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shrug"> So they may have to do it without me!
