Have any of your LO's self-weaned as early as 18 mo?
Until recently DS was still nursing 8-12 times a day.
I started working a few weeks ago. It is part time but there have been a few long days. I've expressed just the minimum to keep from hurting myself, as I've been hoping we'd slow down a little and this job would help with that. However, several times he has nursed on my lunch break, and mostly the hours have only been 9-4 if that.
In just the past few days, DS has been choosing not to nurse pretty frequently. At night he'll wake up crying and miserable, but won't nurse. He'll cuddle up to me and go to sleep. That hasn't happened in his entire life! He has been super nurser! Yesterday in the probably 6 or 7 times he asked to nurse or I offered it, he only had one full meal, at bedtime. The rest of the time he would go to latch and then just stop, either before getting my nipple in his mouth or else he'd have it in for like 3 seconds. In the middle of the night he was bopping on my boob like he didn't know how to nurse.
So anyway, I wanted to see if this sounded normal or if I should call an LC. If he is done, I think I'm okay with that...if this is just what slowing down is like and we're doing it all at once, I'm fine with that too. I just don't know!
