My youngest is 14 months old. My oldest self-weaned at 15 months but she was only nursing maybe twice a day and I think she weaned because I was pregnant (I think my milk dried up.)
This baby has always been an avid nurser and doesn't take a paci. I night-weaned a couple months ago but she still nurses several times a day.
I don't think it's necessarily giving her much nutrition. My supply has totally tanked since night-weaning and I never even feel fullness even if it's been a long time between feedings.
Shes a fantastic eater and eats all table food, snacks and water so I'm not worried about stopping from that perspective.
I feel like she really only does it for comfort which is fine but she's getting increasingly more aggressive when I don't nurse her (throwing fits, screaming). It makes me wonder if this would end if she no longer had the option.
I guess I'm struggling because part of me thinks I should just continue until she weans herself and then another part of thinks I'll have to nudge her that direction if we're going to do it.
I've been pregnant and/or nursing for over 3 years now. I guess I'm wondering what it would be like to get a little break. Also, AF is still MIA and while we're not necessarily TTC, it doesn't appear the systems are on track since we've never prevented and still haven't conceived.
If you've made it this far, any thoughts or stories?
