With quite mixed emotions I realized that my youngest has weaned himself at 2 years and 4 mos. Over the past few months he had dropped down to nursing only when he got up in the morning and maybe during the day if he wasn't too busy or got hurt. Then he started sometimes going a day or so without. And I realized that over the past week or so, he has asked to nurse once. I had to put him off for a minute and he forgot about it.<br><br>
One the one hand, it's nice to not be bitten (he had to be reminded not to bite down, esp. when sleepy), but I miss cuddly moments with my active boy. Without nursing, cuddles are short and sweet. Sigh.

Awww, it is bittersweet... isn't it? My ds went quite awhile this morning without nursing and kinda scared me, but made up for it this afternoon. :LOL I'm not ready for my baby to wean!<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug">

Do you plan to celebrate in any way? What a big time for you & DS. Is he your last? I know my heart will break when DS weans, but it will also be an exciting proud time.
